Use the stat API to get important IFS information.
Written by Bruce Vining
In last month's article, "Trying to Get a Handle on Your IFS?," we saw how a CL program can determine what files are in an IFS directory. Today, we'll take that one step further: finding out when the files were last opened and when they were last changed. This is the type of information that may help you decide what files are ready to be archived and/or deleted on your system.

The Apple App Store is so successful, the number of downloads is no longer measured in millions; it's gone into the billions—10 billion downloads, in fact, since the App Store opened in 2008, according to court documents filed by Apple recently in its trademark infringement suit against Amazon. No wonder Amazon and its similar-sounding Appstore for Android don't care about a little thing like a lawsuit; there's gold in them there hills.
