3. File gid, likewise.
4. Last access time, as a list of two integers.
First integer has high-order 16 bits of time, second has low 16 bits.
(See a note below about FAT-based filesystems.)
5. Last modification time, likewise.
6. Last status change time, likewise.
(See a note below about access time on FAT-based filesystems.)
5. Last modification time, likewise. This is the time of the last
change to the file's contents.
6. Last status change time, likewise. This is the time of last change
to the file's attributes: owner and group, access mode bits, etc.
7. Size in bytes.
This is a floating point number if the size is too large for an integer.
8. File modes, as a string of ten letters or dashes as in ls -l.
9. t if file's gid would change if file were deleted and recreated.
10. inode number. If inode number is larger than the Emacs integer,
but still fits into a 32-bit number, this is a cons cell containing two
integers: first the high part, then the low 16 bits. If the inode number
is wider than 32 bits, this is a cons cell containing three integers:
first the high 24 bits, then middle 24 bits, and finally the low 16 bits.
11. Device number. If it is larger than the Emacs integer, this is
a cons cell, similar to the inode number.
10. inode number. If inode number is larger than what Emacs integer
can hold, but still fits into a 32-bit number, this is a cons cell
containing two integers: first the high part, then the low 16 bits.
If the inode number is wider than 32 bits, this is of the form
(HIGH MIDDLE . LOW): first the high 24 bits, then middle 24 bits,
and finally the low 16 bits.
11. Filesystem device number. If it is larger than what the Emacs
integer can hold, this is a cons cell, similar to the inode number.
On most filesystems, the combination of the inode and the device
number uniquely identifies the file.
On MS-Windows, performance depends on `w32-get-true-file-attributes',
which see.
