I will start working on this in coming days.

Still not sure if I will end up dumping the data to a table or try to do 
something to display some basic values from the parsing program.

I actually have some very specific needs for a current project so I will 
tackle that first.

For my current project I need to know which directories have files newer 
that X days old and of those I need to know on a per directory bases what is 
the most recent date of the most recent file in the directory.

I will likely have that basic functionality this week then I will tackle 
trying to create something a little more flexible.

Anyone that would like to be informed of this project please let me know and 
I will keep you updated. If there is enough interest I will put it in
