This seems like it's simple but for some reason, it's not: Problem: I've been writing a paper- not even a script...just an economics paper- over the last 3 months. I'm trying to determine how much time I've spent writing it, how many times I've saved the file and how much the document grew each change. Is there a command/script to view this info? I'm not looking for exact changes, I'm just looking for the general file information. The only thing I can find is the most recent time the file was modified, but I can't find the information for the modifications before the most recent.
Example of expected output:
$ (elusive and mysterious command that is similar to stat -x) <file> File: "file" Current Size: 1000 FileType: Regular File Mode: (0600/-rw-------) Uid: ( 501/user) Gid: ( 20/ group) Device: 14,2 Inode: number Links: 1 Access: Wed Mar 14 19:50:00 2012 Modified: Fri Dec 23 01:22:40 2011 --Size: 1000 Modified: Wed Dec 21 11:42:21 2011 --Size: 920 Modified: Wed Dec 21 11:01:12 2011 --Size: 703 Modified: Wed Dec 21 10:11:01 2011 --Size: 100 Modified: Tue Dec 20 11:42:38 2011 --Size: 0 Change: Mon Feb 13 20:44:36 2012
