use dir


 /T          Controls which time field displayed or used for sorting
 timefield   C  Creation
             A  Last Access
             W  Last Written


I will see if I can come up with a sub for you.

short and sloppy...

but it'll get you by.


ts("A");

sub ts
{
$v=shift;
$ret=`dir /T$v`;
@arr=split("\n",$ret);


foreach(@arr)
{
$_=/([^ap]+)(.)/;
push(@arr2,$1 . $2);
}
print join("\n",@arr2);
print "done";
}

ts("A", 'autoexec.*');  #date type, filename

sub ts
{
($v,$file)=@_;
$ret=`dir /T$v $file`;
@arr=split("\n",$ret);


foreach(@arr)
{
$_=/([^ap]+)(.)/;
push(@arr2,$1 . $2);
}
print join("\n",@arr2);
print "done";
}
