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.

[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
[Discipulus]: you are right 1nickt i didnt voted nor downvoted; I just upvote perl content i like
[1nickt]: In Spanish, to argue (like a fight) is discutir -- does not mean to discuss !
[1nickt]: Sigh, this is why I gave up human-only languages and became a Perl linguist :-)
[Discipulus]: i just, rarely, downvote unpolite posts and spam, and wrong advices
[Discipulus]: discutere in eatalian is neutral: but discutere with wife sounds implicitly negative..
