Find: Print Size, Modify Date, Type, and Filename
I've been running some serious finds over the past few days and found this cool method of printing the Size, Modify Date, Type (directory, link, file, ext..) and Filename. For my purposes this was pretty useful.
[[email protected] ~]$ find ./ -printf "%s %TD %y %prn" | head 4096 08/14/11 d ./ 4096 12/21/10 d ./.pulse 23 12/21/10 l ./.pulse/8c85d3ca772930c75bea9f640000000f-runtime 73728 02/11/11 f ./.pulse/8c85d3ca772930c75bea9f640000000f-stream-volumes.tdb 42 08/14/11 f ./.pulse/8c85d3ca772930c75bea9f640000000f-default-source 61440 02/11/11 f ./.pulse/8c85d3ca772930c75bea9f640000000f-device-volumes.tdb 43 08/14/11 f ./.pulse/8c85d3ca772930c75bea9f640000000f-default-sink 696 12/21/10 f ./.pulse/8c85d3ca772930c75bea9f640000000f-card-database.tdb 4096 12/22/10 d ./.mozilla
You can redirect this output to a file and do some helpful greps to find things like how many files you have or how many links you have without having to run multiple finds.
