in reply to Re: time difference
in thread time difference

A simple question but somehow it seems to be confusing the heck out of me!

I tried your code BrowserUK on UNIX and things did not come out well so I switched to Windows XP PRO.

Here is what I did

(Note: I changed your 'file' to 'junk')

1. I created a file with some content

2. After a few minutes i added some more content

3. I ran the timestamp program

I see funny results. No matter the file, i get the same result

. Can you throw some light?

C:\>echo hi > junk C:\>dir junk 7/31/2005 10:25 PM 5 junk 1 File(s) 5 bytes 0 Dir(s) 15,975,989,248 bytes free C:\>echo hi2 >> junk C:\>dir junk 07/31/2005 10:28 PM 11 junk 1 File(s) 11 bytes 0 Dir(s) 15,975,989,248 bytes free C:\>perl timestamp 1 : 16 : 00 : 00

I am on activstate

C:\>perl -v This is perl, v5.6.1 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread (with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

When I run the program on UNIX i get  31 : 18 : 00 : 00 as output

Any thoughts?
