I use some type of 'find' command and pipe it into my directory editor, e.g.,

        find . -type f -mtime -10 -print |ded

and yes, GNU grep lets me type

        find   -type f -mtime -10        |ded

I timed GNU grep a few years ago, comparing it against SunOS grep.  At that
time it was indeed 5 times faster.  However, more recent timing (on SunOS,
Solaris, etc.) doesn't show any advantage wrt speed (though I use some of
the options that aren't in the other versions of grep).
