A while ago someone suggested using the stat command to get modification
times for files etc, ls -al will give the info but I would have to do a
lot of string stripping etc ...
I have looked up man "stat", confusing ... googled for it, confusing !
It is not a regular command, ie "stat" on the command line is a no go
though there is a man page for it.
It appears to be a "pearl" module ?
OK simple question. In a bash script can I use stat to get modification
times of files ?
If so what is the syntax ?
