Hi folks

Question from a newbie

I want to display a web page with links to various documents and display the date each document was last modified next to the link.

I've found the filemtime command and that works quite nicely for "local" files.

However, filemtime doesn't work if the file(s) are refered to by their URLs (which is how I need to do it).

A comment on the manual page (http://www.php.net/manual/function.filemtime.php3) refers to having to use "Socket Operations" but the link posted with that comment doesn't work (it just goes to a page saying the website has been rearranged)

Can anyone point me in the direction of the commands I need to use.
