Some things std.file lacks
I love the std.file library.  However, here are some functions with properties
of a file it lacks:

1. DateCreated property
2. DateLastAccessed property
3. DateLastModified property
4. DateCreated Property

These are all possible to get.  I shouldn't have to extern to C to be able to
get these or create my own libraries.  They should be part of std.file library.

Just a thought...

Re: Some things std.file lacks
They're all part of recls.

(Alas, Walter's still unwilling to take the updates to recls that have
occured in the last 15+ months. But you can download it from
http://recls.org/. I'll be releasing a new version, with some newer features
like search progress early in the new year, with the recls/D mapping updated
accordingly.)

Re: Some things std.file lacks
Thanks Matthew...

Gosh, if I only read the documentation, I would be one heck of a genious. :-)

Again, thanks.

Walter, ignore this post. :-)

They are operations pertaining to an individual file, not to the 
specific process of recursing through a directory structure to find a 
file.  As such, they ought to be in std.file.  I refer you back to 
"Simple Operations should be Simple".

What's with the unnecessary and off-point smart-arsery? Did you not get any
nice Christmas presents?

So you think those ops should be std.file? So do I. Well done. Aren't you a
helpful little genius! But you see I was trying to help jicman to acheive
his intent _right now_, given the current state of the libs, whereas your
point is, ... hmmm, well I'm a little lost there. Perhaps you can enlighten
us?

Nice to see this NG's standard of wasted hot air is just as it was when I
last lost the will to live here.

Sheesh. See you all in 2007!

Re: Some things std.file lacks
Shame on you, Matthew; you're tougher than that!

Some people seem to bear long grudges, I think, but I don't think it's 
worth slam-dunk dropping the rest of us so soon, just because of that. :)

Anyway... if you find this newsgroup too annoying, which once in awhile 
I certainly agree that it can be, just come on over to dsource.org now 
and again to get your fill of D.  So far it's been great fun over there. 
   There's some new and old projects that are just about bursting at 
the seams with creativity and vitality.

Oh dear... I just posted upside down... darn it all!  I'm in trouble now!

I suspect Stewart should take Ant's place on your blacklist ;) One thing is
all the hot air, the other the ability to see through it. With 15 Cs below,
I find it nice with some hot air :)

And Matthew, I'm still awaiting my D book copy for review ;)

Lars Ivar, keeping the heat with some nice logs, a pint of Carlsberg and
elves.

So that is when we are going to see something hapening with DTL?

Stewart maybe stated the obvious but by doing that contributed more than 
you did with this post.

It's not a question of toughness, just one of resources. I have been
juggling too many things for too long to the detriment of some, and I've
just got no spare time for filtering out this peurile points-scoring that
people, who may perhaps have more time, are wont to indulge in.

I'll check it out when the time is ripe. Thanks
