Find newest file and its modification time

/ Published in: Bash
Save to your folder(s)

Find the most recently modified file in a directory tree and output its name and modification time. Use index 8 or 10 instead of 9 for access and inode modification time, respectively (see perlfunc manual page - function stat).

This is great for deciding what directories to backup.
