10.3: ls date format switched from previous releases
Authored by: LC on Jan 20, '04 02:23:49PM
Now (10.3.x on my system), the date format from /bin/ls does not match that used by the "-ls" primary of /usr/bin/find. And, find's man page says it's equivalent to ls -dgils which now seems to be slightly in question. Anyone seen a change note from Darwin on this? (By the way, that date line was never fully important for script parsing since items showing a very new or very old date don't have any day displayed ... perl's stat() is always handy;) Larry.
