Ok, it is correct, but I use a class that is an implementation of "libc"

Library "libc:6"

Public Struct stat_
   st_mtime As Long
End Struct

Private Const _STAT_VER_LINUX As Integer = 1
Private Extern __xstat(_STAT_VER As Integer, __path As String, __statbuf 
As Stat_) As Integer

Then i get a long number for dates, which is very useful for comparing 
file times.

Cool, Date.ToUnixTime is what I need, because is faster operate directly 
whit unix time due to the fact that it is not necessary to convert the 

Config.LastScann = Date.ToUnixTime(Now())
