How to find when did i install a particular application/Program on my computer

I have a program called rpm installed on my MAC.
Here is the output of some commands on my Mac :
ls -l `which rpm`
lrwxr-xr-x  1 robinsuri  admin  28 Oct  5 23:58 /usr/local/bin/rpm -> ../Cellar/rpm/5.4.15/bin/rpm

Open in new window

I think i installed it using brew.
I want to know on which date i installed this program ?
How can i find this out The date in the above ls -l command output is the current date only.

rpm -qi [package name] or rpm -ql (L is small case)

That does not work.
I want to find the date when i installed rpm or say java or any other such application which i run from command line....or other way. By rpm i meant the rpm command

Try this :

 rpm -qa --queryformat '%{installtime} %{name}-%{version}-%{release} %{installtime:date}\n' | sort -nr +1 | sed -e 's/^[^ ]* //'

I don't think there is a feature like that in homebrew.  The closest thing you might have is the folder date in /usr/local/Cellar.

You didn't install those packages with rpm or yum.  Those were installed with brew, a different package manager.
