infidelwhat's a regex?
merlynregular expression

j2daoshok, i'm probably going to get like cyber-beatdown for this... but i am looking at the stat() function and i'm not quite sure how i should be using it. 8 is the access time so that is what i want to get, but according to the initial example, my syntax format should be similiar to 8 = stat($filename); but what doesn't seem write because then where is the value stored? shouldn't it be something...
...like $value = stat($filename)[8];?
merlyn(stat $filename)[8]
literal slice
j2daoshohh
