in reply to comparing files based on timestamps

Using stat() function we can get it.

Let's try this example,

#! /bin/perl
use strict;
my ($dev,$ino,$mode,$nlink,$uid,$gid,$rdev,$size, $atime,$ctime,$blksize,$blocks) = stat("subfolder1");
print "$atime\t$mtime\t$ctime\n";

my ($dev,$ino,$mode,$nlink,$uid,$gid,$rdev,$size, $atime,$mtime,$ctime,$blksize,$blocks) = stat("Library");
print "$atime\t$mtime\t$ctime\n";

For more details see "perldoc -f stat".
