Hello,
I am using the "Ftplib" library to connect my PC to an FTP server, list all the files of a specific directory and transfer only the ones created in the last hour.
My problem is that the command

ftp.retrlines('LIST',listing.append)

appends in listing some information about the file but I noticed that if the file is created in 2001 doesn't store the year among the information while if it is created in 2000 or before doesn't stores the year but not the time.
e.g.

-rwxrwxrwx  1 noone    nogroup     40889 Dec 26 1999 1.txt
-rwxrwxrwx  1 noone    nogroup     40889 Dec 26 2000 2.txt
-rwxrwxrwx  1 noone    nogroup     40889 Jan  5 2000 3.txt
-rwxrwxrwx  1 noone    no group     81630 Feb  5 12:12 4.tat
-rwxrwxrwx  1 noone    no group     81630 Feb  5 12:12 5.tat
-rwxrwxrwx  1 noone    no group     19456 Feb  8 15:27 6.tat

The last 3 files were created in 2001.
I was wondering is it is possible to have either Time and Year.
Are there some example on how the "Ftplib" commands work?

Thanks in advance and my best regards,
Andrea.
