FTP : Time problem (net/ftp)

Hi All

I tried to get down with some ftp stuff and got stuck-up at this:

Using net/ftp, When I try running ls or list methods I get the
directory listings detailing everything including “modified time” BUT
with missing year information.

But when i tried the same stuff with the ‘chilkat’ ftp module , the
listing included the elusive ‘year’ information.


  1. Is there any way in RUBY to get the modified time (except the mdtm
    because that DOES NOT work on the ftp server in question).

On a second note how did the chilkat guys do it and if they can
perhaps anyone else can too!
