Here is some information Hans was helping me with that explains how to
set various page variables such as the file creation date, or file
last modified date, and use them in a page.  It works pretty easy. 
The reference to php.net gives even more info.  It only answers one or
your question, but it's probably a similar method to do file size. 
(Thanks again Hans!)

you need to use page variables. look at blogsimple.php script for some
date variables i use in the blog. look at the recent posting with Neil
where he wanted a time.

If you want a different format change it inside the strftime function,
see http://uk.php.net/strftime

time() retruns current server system time.
$page["ctime"] returns page creation time.
$page["time"] return page last modified time.


The Editor to Hans
I looked at the documentation and guess I got close, but no cigar.  I tried this

$FmtPV['$LastDateModified'] = 'strftime("%Y-%m-%d", $LastModified )';

Problem is, it gave me 1969-12-31 as the date for every entry!  It was
a good stab at it!
