I don't know enough the alias command in bash.

But as ~/bin is in my $PATH, I created the /bin/spot file with this content:

mdfind -onlyin "`pwd`" $@ \
| sed s/^.\*\$/\"\&\"/g \
| xargs ls -lt \
| sed  s:"`pwd`"/:: \
| sed "s/^[-dltrwx]*\ *[0-9]*\ [a-z]*\ *[a-z]*\ *[0-9]*//"
Remove the \ on the end of line to put the whole command on a single line - leave the #!/bin/sh alone, though.

Then I made it executable :

~$ chmod +x bin/spot

And there I go !

~$ spot spot
 Mar 30 18:16 bin/spot

Not great bash, I guess. Still, thanks for this useful spot command !
