SYNOPSIS

shtool mdate [-n|--newline] [-z|--zero] [-s|--shorten] [-d|--digits] [-f|--field-sep str] [-o|--order spec] path  

DESCRIPTION

This command pretty-prints the last modification time of a given file or directory path, while still allowing one to specify the format of the date to display.  

OPTIONS

The following command line options are available.
-n, --newline
By default, output is written to stdout followed by a ``newline'' (ASCII character 0x0a). If option -n is used, this newline character is omitted.
-z, --zero
Pads numeric day and numeric month with a leading zero. Default is to have variable width.
-s, --shorten
Shortens the name of the month to a english three character abbreviation. Default is full english name. This option is silently ignored when combined with -d.
-d, --digits
Use digits for month. Default is to use a english name.
-f, --field-sep str
Field separator string between the day month year tripple. Default is a single space character.
-o, --order spec
Specifies order of the day month year elements within the tripple. Each element represented as a single character out of ``"d"'', ``"m"'' and ``"y"''. The default for spec is ``"dmy"''.
 

EXAMPLE

 #   shell script
 shtool mdate -n /
 shtool mdate -f '/' -z -d -o ymd foo.txt
 shtool mdate -f '-' -s foo.txt
