Linux - Find files edited today

find . -mtime -1 \! -type d -exec ls -l {} \;

Find all files in this directory (.) modified in the last day (-mtime -1) that aren't directories (\! -type d) and execute the list function on them ls -l

That would produce (on this directory at the time of writing):

[root tips]# find . -mtime -1 \! -type d -exec ls -l {} \;
