GetCreationTime, GetLastAccessTime, GetLastWriteTime

My code is dying at run-time.  The output displays the filename but nothing else (it bombs after there).  What am I doing wrong?  (Note: I'm looking for the simplest solution that builds upon this little block below, which is merely attempting to display the filename, and related time information).  Thanks.

#include <afx.h>
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

void main () {
      CFileFind finder;
      CTime creation_time;
      BOOL bWorking = finder.FindFile("C:\\send.bat");
      while (bWorking)
      {
      bWorking = finder.FindNextFile();
      cout << (LPCTSTR) finder.GetFileName() << endl;
        cout << (LPCTSTR) finder.GetCreationTime(creation_time) << endl;
        cout << (LPCTSTR) finder.GetLastAccessTime(creation_time) << endl;
        cout << (LPCTSTR) finder.GetLastWriteTime(creation_time) << endl;
      }
}

The GetCreationTime() method returns a bool, and not a CString. You are casting the bool to a LPCTSTR, which of course points to the memory address 0 or 1. That's the reason you are getting a crash.

OK, thank you, but how do I cout the stuff I'm actually looking for (the date/times)?

You need to convert the CTime object to a string first:

finder.GetCreationTime(creation_time);
CString sTime = creation_time.Format( ...your format string ... );
cout << sTime << endl;

Look up the description for CTime::Format() for information about how to format your time string.

Hi Snood..
Check this example...

 CFileFind finder;

   BOOL bWorking = finder.FindFile(_T("C:\\*.*"));

   while (bWorking)
   {
      bWorking = finder.FindNextFile();

      _tprintf(_T("%s\n\t"), (LPCTSTR) finder.GetFileName());
      _tprintf(_T("%c"), finder.IsArchived() ? 'A' : 'a');
      _tprintf(_T("%c"), finder.IsCompressed() ? 'C' : 'c');
      _tprintf(_T("%c"), finder.IsHidden() ? 'H' : 'h');
      _tprintf(_T("%c"), finder.IsNormal() ? 'N' : 'n');
      _tprintf(_T("%c"), finder.IsReadOnly() ? 'R' : 'r');
      _tprintf(_T("%c"), finder.IsSystem() ? 'S' : 's');
      _tprintf(_T("%c"), finder.IsTemporary() ? 'T' : 't');

      _tprintf(_T("\t%I64u byte(s)\n"), finder.GetLength());
     
      CTime tempTime;
      CString str;
     
      _tprintf(_T("\tCreated    : "));
      if (finder.GetCreationTime(tempTime))
      {
         str = tempTime.Format(_T("%c"));
         _tprintf(_T("%s\n"), (LPCTSTR) str);
      }
      else
         _tprintf(_T("(unavailable)\n"));

      _tprintf(_T("\tLast Access: "));
      if (finder.GetLastAccessTime(tempTime))
      {
         str = tempTime.Format(_T("%c"));
         _tprintf(_T("%s\n"), (LPCTSTR) str);
      }
      else
         _tprintf(_T("(unavailable)\n"));

      _tprintf(_T("\tLast Write : "));
      if (finder.GetLastWriteTime(tempTime))
      {
         str = tempTime.Format(_T("%c"));
         _tprintf(_T("%s\n"), (LPCTSTR) str);
      }
      else
         _tprintf(_T("(unavailable)\n"));

      _tprintf(_T("\n"));
   }
