while (($file = readdir($handle))!==false) {
	$filedate = date("d-m-Y H:i:s",filemtime($file));
	echo $filedate."<br>";

filemtime returns 0 for all files on a directory except for . and ..

can you check whether this still errs with 4.0.4 or latest CVS? if so, reopen this bug report.
it works for me(TM) with today's CVS mod_php4 on NT5.

This code works fine if you use '.' for the dir. But if you
use './somesubdir' filemtime always returns false. Could it be looking for the filename string in the current dir regarless of the filename passed?
