Yes, FTP is ugly, in more than one aspect. Things get much worse when the FTP server runs on DOS, Windows or Netware. The "human readable" output often is readable, but far from anything you would expect from an FTP server running on Unix.

baskar_79, could you connect using SSH and use SFTP instead? SFTP has atime/mtime/ctime, since at least version 4 (dated 2002). As a nice side effect, you get encrypted transfers and you could switch from passwords to public key authentication.
