If all you want is the $mtime, you might as well use this:

my $mtime = (stat("/home/user/ptest/$dir"))[9];

...at least it's easier to read ;)

    Very true :)...I was a little too eager on the reply :), but at least it shows the available info one can get from 'stat'...

      A simple link to stat would do that too, and probably be even more helpful ;)
