in reply to Posting file's modification date?

You will find a discussion here Find and check timestamps of files. The answer is basically

$mod = (stat "$path/$filename")[9]; # this prints result in usual date format # like -> Tue Jun 12 23:50:10 2001 print scalar localtime $mod;

If you use Super Search you will find heaps of examples on this topic floating around the monastery. This is also in the Perl FAQ at How do I get a file's timestamp in perl?. If you have not discoverd the Perl FAQ you are missing out on heaps of goodies.

[MidLifeXis]: Project Admin, a while ago: "No, I would prefer you didn't close that ticket yet confirming $vendor's support process yet. Continue to periodically check back to see if it has changed."...
[MidLifeXis]: Project Admin, today, after many periodic updates from me: "Why hasn't this been closed yet? Is there anything I can do to get this closed?" <facepalm>
[MidLifeXis]: In addition to SOAP (last hour of cb), try water. ;-)
[MidLifeXis]: hahaha: Just received a buzz-word-bingo- compliant email (internal) that starts with "%Firstname% %Lastname%...". It only gets better from there.
