Equivalent to stat(file).ctime


In the Julia programming language, the function ctime(file) is equivalent to stat(file).ctime. It returns the creation time of the specified file.

julia> ctime("path/to/file.txt")

Here are some common examples of how to use the ctime function:

  1. Get the creation time of a file:

    julia> ctime("path/to/file.txt")

    This example returns the creation time of the file located at "path/to/file.txt".

  2. Use with the stat function:
    julia> file_stat = stat("path/to/file.txt")
    julia> ctime(file_stat)

    The ctime function can also be used with the stat function to obtain the creation time from a file's StatStruct.

Common mistake example:

julia> ctime("nonexistent_file.txt")
ERROR: SystemError: stat: No such file or directory (ENOENT)

In this example, the file specified does not exist, which results in a SystemError. Make sure to provide a valid file path to avoid such errors and ensure the file exists before using ctime.
