Last Update on FTP transfer, perl call ?
Posted on 2003-12-08
Perl/CGI; I use a lot of .lib files, common library, such as:
Our database administrator uses above .lib file for keeping updates that is used by management and sales to keep track on what is going on. Lots of times, a sales person or other will wonder when the last time something was updated. Question: Is there a way for perl to know when a certain file was overwritten, hence updated? Files are simply transfer via FTP to a web server. I know how to call time:
$date = `/bin/date`;
" current date and time is $date "
But that is current time, not when a file was overwritten or updated. Unix/lynx webserver is used.
