I am aware of the undofiles in Vim but they are binary and I don't know how to read them. I tries strings but it didn't help for my purpose.
I am also aware of the
:changes command but that only gives me the list of changes with their location.
What I need is the timestamps of these changes.
I believe it should be possible to have that since there is the
:earlier command but I couldn't figure how.
What I want is to figure out when the file was last changed and hopefully also the timestamps of all the previous changes.
stat did not help.
