filetime 0.2.23

Platform-agnostic accessors of timestamps in File metadata



A helper library for inspecting and setting the various timestamps of files in Rust. This library takes into account cross-platform differences in terms of where the timestamps are located, what they are called, and how to convert them into a platform-independent representation.

# Cargo.toml
filetime = "0.2"

Advantages over using std::fs::Metadata

This library includes the ability to set this data, which std does not.

This library, when built with RUSTFLAGS=--cfg emulate_second_only_system set, will return all times rounded down to the second. This emulates the behavior of some file systems, mostly HFS, allowing debugging on other hardware.
