That test doesn't seem to match his description. That would be more like:

> md dir1 > md dir1\dir2 > copy nul dir1\dir2\file

And he's expecting the mtime of dir1 to be updated after the copy.

    The system (NTFS + WinXP) doesn't appear to work that way.

    As you can see, the system says the parent directory (".") was last modified earlier than when the child directory ("dir2") was last modified:

    >dir dir1 Volume in drive C is C Volume Serial Number is 28AB-0E8B Directory of C:\Documents and Settings\ikegami\dir1 2009/08/28 12:43 PM <DIR> . 2009/08/28 12:43 PM <DIR> .. 2009/08/28 12:44 PM <DIR> dir2

    Perl reports the same.
