so theres actually no such thing as the last file modification/creation date according to the os/fs ?
Those are two different things.
You can almost get those things from a stat(2) call:
mtime is definately last modified time, but ctime isn’t exactly creation time. So no, there really isn’t a creation date. Not one available via POSIX, anyway.
I was actually reffering to mt-daapd and the smart playlists 😉
Thanks for the man stat 101 though 😮
