also for a reference list of all the availible PHP commands on files check out the following site :

http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.filesystem.php

the following inparticular I think is what your looking for:

fileatime -- Gets last access time of file
filectime -- Gets inode change time of file
filegroup -- Gets file group
fileinode -- Gets file inode
filemtime -- Gets file modification time
fileowner -- Gets file owner
fileperms -- Gets file permissions
filesize -- Gets file size
filetype -- Gets file type

Cheers.
