I recently came across the PHP `fileatime()` function and I'm a bit confused about its usage. I've been trying to understand its purpose and how it can be implemented in my code, but I'm struggling to find a clear explanation.
From what I gather, `fileatime()` is used to retrieve the last access time of a file in Unix timestamp format. But I'm not sure how exactly I can use this information in my PHP scripts.
Can someone please provide me with a practical example or use case where `fileatime()` could be useful? It would be great if you could also explain the steps involved in retrieving and utilizing the last access time of a file with this function.
Thank you in advance!
