>>find the information about a file

Other than when it was last executed, what are you looking for?

ls -al /path/file_name
will tell you permissions, owner, group, size, mod date.

>>like last executed all info

I don't believe there is anything out of the box that tells you that.

You would likely have to turn on auditing.

How you do that likely depends on what flavor of Linux you are using.

You can use 'file' to determine file type or architecture. (32bit or x86_64).
