   Oh, and just in case you need the routine for the file time too..

   FUNCTION asctime$ (filetime%)
     hour$ = LTRIM$(STR$((filetime% AND 63488) \ 2048))
     minute$ = LTRIM$(STR$((filetime% AND 2016) \ 32))
     second$ = LTRIM$(STR$((filetime% AND 31) * 2))
     IF LEN(hour$) = 1 THEN hour$ = "0" + hour$
     IF LEN(minute$) = 1 THEN minute$ = "0" + minute$
     IF LEN(second$) = 1 THEN second$ = "0" + second$
     asctime = hour$ + ":" + minute$ + ":" + second$
