I want to let visitors to one of my sites know when a PDF (accessed via a static link address) has been updated without having to manually edit the page. …and without the visitor having to actually view the PDF to check it for themselves.
I believe that a Unix command can obtain the file property, but how do I get that information into (and to update automatically) into the page where the link exists?
The page is at http://cslabq.org/SundayBulletin/SundayBulletin.htm
I want to put something next to the Current Bulletin link like “Updated on 1/21/07” that will use the file date of the target file http://cslabq.org/SundayBulletin/bulletin.pdf.
“Man, know thyself.”
