New on CTAN: file­date

Uwe L?ck sub­mit­ted the file­date pack­age to CTAN. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Ac­cess and com­pare info and mod­i­fi­ca­tion dates Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
`file­date.sty' pro­vides ba­sic ac­cess to the date of a LaTeX source file ac­cord­ing to its \Pro­videsFile, \Pro­videsPack­age, or \Pro­videsClass en­try -- the "info date" --, as well as to its mod­i­fi­ca­tion date ac­cord­ing to \pdf­file­mod­date if the lat­ter is avail­able. More­over com­mands are pro­vided to com­pare the "info date" with the mod­i­fi­ca­tion date, with "to­day"'s date, or with an­other date that a script ac­cess­ing mod­i­fica- tion dates such as ad­hoc­filelist.sh may in­sert, and to choose the ef­fect of com­par­isons (er­ror vs. "no­tice", ref­er­ence date char­ac­ter­i­za­tion). Thus up­dat­ing the "info date" ("date con- sis­tency") of a source file may be en­sured by a test dur­ing type­set­ting from it or by some (shell/TeX) script. In fact the test to­day ad­mon­ished me to up­date the doc­u­men­ta­tion source and driver `file­date.tex'. Another mo­ti­vat­ing ex­am­ple of "date in­con­sis­tency" was `nice­filelist' v0.6 as of 2012-10-11 (see ver­sion his­tory) with "info date" 2012/10/03. REQUIRED PACKAGES: `read­prov' for two com­mands
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/file­date . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/file­date (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
