I would add 2 useful commands:
ls -at will show the files sorted by time. The newest will appear first.
The second command that I highly recommend is for those who don't know which
command to apply. A highly educative learning tool. For instance
man -k directory will print all the commands related to directory that can
A partially output of the above command is:
mdel (1) - delete an MSDOS file mdeltree - recursively
delete an MSDOS directory and its contents
mdeltree (1) - recursively delete an MSDOS directory and its
mdir (1) - display an MSDOS directory
mdu (1) - display the amount of space occupied by an MSDOS
mkdir (2) - create a directory
mkdir (3p) - make a directory
mkdirat (2) - create a directory relative to a directory file
mkdtemp (3) - create a unique temporary directory
mkfifoat (3) - make a FIFO (named pipe) relative to a directory
mkfontdir (1) - create an index of X font files in a directory
mkfontdir (1x) - create an index of X font files in a directory
mklost+found (8) - create a lost+found directory on a mounted Linux
second extended file system
mknod (3p) - make a directory, a special file, or a regular
rm (1p) - remove directory entries
rmdir (2) - delete a directory
rmdir (3p) - remove a directory
It doesn't require root permissions.
