Sort files in multiple directories by date

find . -type f -exec ls -l --full-time {} + | sort -k 6,7
This sorts files in multiple directories by their modification date. Note that sorting is done at the end using "sort", instead of using the "-ltr" options to "ls". This ensures correct results when sorting a large number of files, in which case "find" will call "ls" multiple times.
