On a VAX, I've got a database file that is always open and
locked. I need to get the creation date of the db file
from a Fortran program, but the only methods I've seen of
doing this involve actually $open -ing the file, which does
not seem possible. It's obviously possible to get the
information, as dump/header, directory, and
f$file_attributes() can get the information without any
problem. How can I get the creation date/time?
