To get the date and time attributes of a file, you can use os.stat.
will return a tuple with file info... its size, attributes, etc.
Element -2 (!) is the time used by the file system. You will see a
weird long number like, for example, 928696080; this is because date
and time are packed into one number. Unpack it with the
time.localtime function. This returns another tuple whose elements
are pretty straightforward (year, month, etc).
The system time, on the other hand, can be retrieved with
time.time(). Once again, you'll get one number, which needs to be
unpacked with time.localtime().
For further information, I suggest you study the time module and
