Timestamp of files in pyILPER filled with 00; issue?

Postby floppy_stuttgart » Sun Feb 20, 2022 11:14 am

Hello,
I was creating a new virtual drive with pyilper (since previous files seems weird).
Now I dont see "Date" and "Time" in the column; only "00". See attachment.
pyILPER version is 1.8.3 and lifutils is 1.7.10
Is this usual?
So far, the file can be accessed via hp41/pilbox to the Debian11 64bits PC; it means it must not have a stamp time; only the versioning-monitoring (if the timestamp would help for this) has to be done in another way.

Files written by an HP-41C do not have date and time, even if the LIF format media can store it if available.

Keep in mind that the original 41C and 41CV had no internal clock at all (not available until the Time module came out, and then later in the 41CX it was built-in). Also, none of the 41 machines store time stamps for internal "files", as the 41 has no file system at all.
