Get latest file from directory

New Contributor

i have a dir /automation_test/oozie/output/Bigdata_Counts/.i have multiple files in this dir.I want to read only latest file from this directory




Please elaborate your question else the simplest way to get the latest file in Linux


$ ls -lrt /automation_test/oozie/output/Bigdata_Counts/


But I guess you want to do that programmatically?
