What changes need to occur to affect each time on a file or directory? So far I have: Atime: read a file modify the permissions modify the ownership create new file Ctime: modify the permissions modify the ownership modify the first level of contents of a directory create new file Mtime: modify the contents of a file create new file This is based of the googling and limited testing I have done. Which begs a question, wiki, for what it's worth, states that if a permission or ownership change is made that both the atime and ctime will be modified. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stat_(Unix) How can a ctime be newer than an atime?
