In Linux, RH 6.x, how do I specify the ls command such that the files that were most recently edited are displayed at the end of the list ?

Thanks

Try using head or tail. If you want the 5 most-recently modified files:

ls -1t | head -5

The -1 (that's a one) says one file per line and the head says take the first 5 entries.

If you want the last 5 try

ls -1t | tail -5
