Thanks all for your help,
stat -f "%Mp%Lp:%u:%g:%N"
does the trick

but I have a *large* number of files.. and would expect a shell error

cat file_list.txt | xargs stat -f "%N %u %g %Mp%Lp"
And of course that *will* be a problem if he has a large number of files, since
there are limits on how long lines are acceptable...
xargs causes the same deal, and have the same limit as the shell itself. You
pass a large line to the stat program.
If indeed the number of files are so large that this is a problem, then he needs
to process the files fewer at a time.
There are several ways to go about doing that. Putting the result in a file, and
then split the file, and go through each piece independently for instance, or
use find in a more creative way...
