Detailed Description

Meta data for a file or directory.

Container for various meta data about a file in the virtual file system. PHYSFS_stat() uses this structure for returning the information. The time data will be either the number of seconds since the Unix epoch (midnight, Jan 1, 1970), or -1 if the information isn't available or applicable. The (filesize) field is measured in bytes. The (readonly) field tells you whether the archive thinks a file is not writable, but tends to be only an estimate (for example, your write dir might overlap with a .zip file, meaning you can successfully open that path for writing, as it gets created elsewhere.
