ls -clt <filename> to show creation time.
ls -mlt <filename> to show modification time.

That's odd. I tried the commands under SuSE 9.3 before I posted. I got different results for the same file.

It's either a Slackjaw problem, or a ReiserFS problem.

Linux doesn't even keep track of creation times.

And to get the access time use
ls -ul

Code:
-m     fill width with a comma separated list of entries


Cheers,
Tink
