> When we are storing the modification times and comparing between files during execution of mysync, are we able to use the st_mtim.tv_sec field of the stat struct? I am not sure if the lab machines will recognise this as I have read that st_mtime is another way to obtain this same information. st_mtime is not recognised in my ide.
Your program will be tested on a contemporary Linux distribution, such as the Ubuntu distribution in the CSSE labs. I suggest that you try it on one of those machines.
> Also, are we storing modification times as seconds or nanoseconds? There are options for both.
Just seconds. Someone asked previously about the st_mtim (without the 'e') [help2002] but we never heard back as to whether it was solved.
