I am working on a script and everything is going nicely so far... but I can't find how to get a files Last Modified date. I am pretty sure it is a simple 'one line' statement, but I don't see it in my book.

The function you are looking for is stat.

 ($dev,$ino,$mode,$nlink,$uid,$gid,$rdev,$size, $atime,$mtime,$ctime,$blksize,$blocks)
   = stat($filename);

(Can also take an open filehandle instead of a filename).

$mtime is the last modication time (which can be made printable etc. with localtime()).

Good luck!
