reading file date & time of EXE

reading file date & time of EXE

reading file date & time of EXE

I played with this awhile ago,  but lost track of the code to find the file date, time & size of an EXE file.

RE: reading file date & time of EXE

Hi, Jim

I usually use the adir() function.

Here is an example cribbed from the NG:

      LOCAL aName, aSize, aDate, aTime, aAttr, nLen, i
      nLen := ADIR( "*.EXE" )     // Number of EXE files in this directory
      IF nLen > 0
         aName := Array( nLen )   // make room to store the information
         aSize := Array( nLen )
         aDate := Array( nLen )
         aTime := Array( nLen )
         aAttr := Array( nLen )
         FOR i = 1 TO nLen
             ? aName[i], aSize[i], aDate[i], aTime[i], aAttr[i]
         ? "This directory has no .EXE files"

(I know, I should have put those cute code delimiters to make it look nice)

RE: reading file date & time of EXE


Thanks for the reply, I'll try it tomorrow.  Also I don't do cute any more, looked great as is.
