Just for the record:  lsmac.pl is a perl program listing a directory
entry (hence: ls) with Modified, Access and Created times (hence mac).
It can be used on any directory item.  As leafnode uses these times for
book keeping, especially expiry, they have special importance.

>From the description:

  For each directory given on the command line, lsmac.pl will list the
  directory contents with ctime, mtime and atime for each of the
  entries.  The columns are, in this order: ctime, mtime, atime, number
  of links, size and file name.

  If no directory is given, lsmac.pl will process the current directory.
