I run ls -la to get:

oracle@bb0:~/scripts$ ls -la /tmp/score_provider_delete.lst
-rw-r--r--   1 oracle   oracle       264 Sep  8 12:45 /tmp/score_provider_delete.lst
What is the easiest way to extract just the Sep 8 12:45?
Must i use awk or is there something more accessable?

...

Or just do it how I wrote, which is a syntax that is easier on the eyes than all those quotes.  Just use commas as I originally posted.
