Getting the date modified of a file

Post by Lap » Sun Jan 02, 2011 12:21 am

Is there a love.filesystem or other function to find out the latest date a file has been modified?

I don't think so. Open up an issue https://bitbucket.org/rude/love/issues

FWIW, my cheap hack to get around this is just to write the curent datetime to the first line of a file when I make a savegame, then when I need to find the latest save just read in every save file's first line.

Yea I was thinking about doing this since I was already hiding other descriptive info there, but there's really no reason for us to keep using this workaround, especially since it only works on savegames you create and not other files.
