in my Simulink model I want to create a block which will read from a file from time to time. The file will not be updated every time the block runs, so in order to save the performance for fopen'ing the file I would just like to check on the file date and time.
Is there any handy Matlab function which will return the file's date and time as a number (e.g. double, 32 bit int etc.)
This is for Matlab / Simulink R2012a, running on WinXP.
Thanks for any hints
