I have a file ANIL.sh created years back. I want to find files created after ANIL.sh.

I know how to find particular file using the find command. But I am not sure how to get files created after ANIL.sh.

Any suggestions?


Assuming you want to restrict yourself to regular files (not directories etc.) and that you want to look in the directory topdir (which is where ANIL.sh also lives):

find topdir -type f -newer topdir/ANIL.sh

This would give you the pathnames of any regular file in or below topdir that has a modification timestamp later than the ANIL.sh file.

Creation time is not available on most Unix system.
