- file atime name ?time?
Note that there does not appear to be an interface to ctime - the time the last file attribute change occured. The ctime that is returned by file attributes is not the creation time (at least not on Unix).The value of ctime is returned by the file stat command. The ctime is not the creation time but the last time one of the values returned by file stat changed (ergo, ctime=change time?). The ctime value can't be edited directly, but editing mtime or atime will change the ctime value.male 2007-03-15:Hhm - ctime from the stat array is not the creation time?The documentation of the Tcl_Stat function from the tcl C API says:
- “Tcl_Stat fills the stat structure statPtr with information about the specified file. ... The stat structure includes info regarding device, inode (always 0 on Windows), ..., size, last access time, last modification time, and creation time.”
