I'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish, but I believe the client
will always modify the date of flies when checking them out to be the
current date/time, regardless of the date it had when checked in.

There have been numerous threads about this in the past. The "winning
side"'s argument is that newly checked out files need to be timestamped
"now" regardless of when they really were created, because otherwise
make systems (the assumed most common usage) get confused. The "loosing
side"'s arguments, well, who can remember them? :-D

So if you are trying to get a checked out file to have the same date as
when it got checked in, I think you may be fighting a loosing battle here...

I'm not sure what to search for, but there have been threads in the past
about this. (If that is what you're trying to do.)

Peter
