"ls -F" appends indicators */=>@| to filenames.
- * means executable.
- / means directory.
- = means socket.
- > means door.
- @ means symbolic link (or that the file has extended attributes).

only show filename and modification time
ls -al | cut -d ' ' -f 6-
Another way (using find):
find -maxdepth 1 -type f -printf "%TY %Tb %Td %TH:%TM\t%p\n"
To sort the files based on timestamp (reverse chronological order)
find -maxdepth 1 -type f -printf "%T+#%TY %Tb %Td %TH:%TM\t%p\n" | sort -rn| cut -d# -f2-
The %T+ is used to sort the output properly and gets removed by cut afterwards.
