Class: File::Stat

Defined in:
file.c,
file.c

Overview

Objects of class File::Stat encapsulate common status information for File objects. The information is recorded at the moment the File::Stat object is created; changes made to the file after that point will not be reflected. File::Stat objects are returned by IO#stat, File::stat, File#lstat, and File::lstat. Many of these methods return platform-specific values, and not all values are meaningful on all systems. See also Kernel#test.

Constructor Details

#File::Stat.new(file_name) ⇒ Object

Create a File::Stat object for the given file name (raising an exception if the file doesn't exist).

Instance Method Details

#<=>(other_stat) ⇒ -1, ...

Compares File::Stat objects by comparing their respective modification times.

nil is returned if the two values are incomparable.

f1 = File.new("f1", "w")
sleep 1
f2 = File.new("f2", "w")
f1.stat <=> f2.stat   #=> -1

Returns:

  • (-1, 0, 1, nil)
