Behavior of dirdate -dirfix
Posted on 2013-12-14
Recently an Expert introduced me to a utility called dirdate, which helps to correct time stamp errors. When dirdate -dirfix is applied to a folder, the folder's creation date set to the oldest modified date of any file contained within. The folder's modified date is set to the newest modified date of any file within. My question is: wouldn't it make sense to set the folder's creation date to the oldest creation date of a contained file, instead of the oldest modified date of a contained file? If so, is there a method for accomplishing that?
