I have a piece of javascript on one of my pages which displays the date the page was last modified, the important bit is:

dateUpdated = new Date(document.lastModified);

I want to replace this with PHP but I haven't as yet come across a function that can get me the date the current script, or any arbitrary file, was last modified. Is there one? Is there a superglobal that has the info I want?
Sir Isaac Newton said "If I have seen farther, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants". But it is not recorded as to whether he said it before or after he was hit on the head by a falling apple.

You can do it like so...
$updated = date("F d Y H:i:s.", getlastmod());
