This pack­age is new at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your lo­cal mir­ror. Thanks, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ....................................................................... The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: get­file­date Author's name: Ahmed Musa Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: / Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Fetches and for­mats the date of last mod­i­fi­ca­tion of any res­i­dent file. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
The pack­age fetches from the sys­tem the date of last mod­i­fi­ca­tion or open­ing of a res­i­dent file. It is based on an idea by Heiko Oberdiek that ap­peared in Fe­bru­ary 2009 on the TeX news­group web­site comp.text.tex, ie, us­ing the \pdf­file­mod­date com­mand of pdfTeX. A user- friendly in­ter­face is pro­vided for ob­tain­ing and pre­sent­ing the needed file­date in sev­eral for­mats.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/get­file­date . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/get­file­date (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
