Ah!  Good idea.  ``dir /?`` shows help and can tell you that ``dir /OD
/TC`` lists by creation date and ``dir /OD /TC`` by last written date.
Learn something every day!

And with yymmdd instead of ddmmyy (like is normal in europe) you can
also list by name and get the chronological order if you have files
from more than one month or even year in a directory(tree).  Thanks!
