In windos there is a creation date associated with a file and in Linux there isn’t. What happens to the creation date when that file is transfered from windos to a Linux system I assume the creation date becomes the last modification date?
The reason I ask I created a program in Windows (C#) that gets php files from a webserver and stores the files in chronological order in an Access database. Since I am converting to Linux I am planning on re-writing this program for Linux and still need chronological order. I think I am stuck just using modification time? (I plan on using C++ and SQLLite)
I have been using filezilla in windos for getting the php files. I am just starting to think about getting the files by a program that I will write. I have a lot on my plate because the current windos program is one monolithic exe file that gets the files, convert them to RTF then stores them into an Access mdb file. I want to brake it up into smaller executables, more of the linux mind set, use C++ instead of C# and use SQL lite. So I have a lot to plan out before I just go writing software.
