Of course, calling stat (a unix system call emulation) is a very roundabout way of calling GetFileTime. The work has already been done for you in Win32API::File::Time.

use strict; use warnings; use Encode qw( encode ); use Win32API::File::Time qw( GetFileTime ); { # The file name consists of a black heart (U+2665). my $fn = encode('UCS-2le', "\x{2665}"); local ${^WIDE_SYSTEM_CALLS} = 1; my ($atime, $mtime, $ctime) = GetFileTime($fn) or die("GetFileTime: $^E\n"); print("atime: ", scalar(localtime($atime)), "\n"); print("mtime: ", scalar(localtime($mtime)), "\n"); print("ctime: ", scalar(localtime($ctime)), "\n"); }
