Use CFDIRECTORY.  Heres an example:

<CFDIRECTORY DIRECTORY="d:\temps"
           NAME="DateTimeQuery"
           FILTER="test.txt">
<CFSET MyDateTime=DateTimeQuery.datelastmodified>
<CFOUTPUT>
      #MyDateTime#
</CFOUTPUT>

Obviously you can insert variables for the DIRECTORY and FILTER attributes.  Let me know if you have any questions.
