find the creation date of a csv file in typescript

To find the creation date of a CSV file in TypeScript, you can use the fs module provided by Node.js. The fs module allows you to work with the file system of your computer, including reading and writing files.

The stat method of the fs module can be used to get information about a file, such as its size, permissions, and creation time. The birthtime property of the returned Stats object represents the creation time of the file.

Here is an example TypeScript code snippet that shows how to use the fs module to get the creation date of a CSV file:

import * as fs from 'fs';

const filePath = 'path/to/file.csv';

fs.stat(filePath, (err, stats) => {
  if (err) {

  const creationDate = stats.birthtime;
  console.log(`The file was created on ${creationDate}.`);

14 lines

Note that the fs.stat method is asynchronous, so you need to use a callback function to handle the result of the operation. The callback function takes two parameters: an error object (if an error occurred), and a Stats object that contains information about the file. In this example, we check if an error occurred, and if not, we log the creation date of the file to the console.
