  • abs_path: the absolute path of the file.

  • dirname: the directory of the file.

  • basename: the name of the file.

  • size: the file size in bytes.

  • mtime: the timestamp indicating when the file was last modified, in milliseconds that have elapsed since the Unix epoch (00:00:00 UTC, Jan 1, 1970).

  • mtime_string: the date and time the file was last modified.
