In the man of
-ctime is said to be :
-ctime n File status was last changed n*24 hours ago. See the comments for -atime to understand how rounding affects the interpretation of file status change times. -atime n File was last accessed n*24 hours ago. When find figures out how many 24-hour periods ago the file was last accessed, any fractional part is ignored, so to match -atime +1, a file has to have been accessed at least two days ago.
I know from here that the
ext4 file system stores the creation date , and you can get it using
stats , is the
status change times they are talking about in the manual the same as the one given by
stats ? or precisely , is the
ctime the date of creation of a file ?
