Yes, but how do you filter the result on some combination of file attributes?

du -a | cut -f2 | xargs ls -dl | grep <awful pattern> | sed 's/.*:[0-9]* //' ?

And then you would have a hard time specifying pattern for "newer than 5 days".

If you want to do it this way around, a command is missing for filtering a
list of file names, as already mentioned by RaphaŽl. It could be generalised
to a command for filtering stdin by calling a predicate command, e.g:

du -a | cut -f2 | filter test -w

For this, test is missing "newer than 5 days" since that's what find does.
