Write a Python program to get file creation and modification date/times. code example

Example: python get file date creation

import os
import platform

def creation_date(path_to_file):
    Try to get the date that a file was created, falling back to when it was
    last modified if that isn't possible.
    See http://stackoverflow.com/a/39501288/1709587 for explanation.
    if platform.system() == 'Windows':
        return os.path.getctime(path_to_file)
        stat = os.stat(path_to_file)
            return stat.st_birthtime
        except AttributeError:
            # We're probably on Linux. No easy way to get creation dates here,
            # so we'll settle for when its content was last modified.
            return stat.st_mtime
