comparing time stamps

Hello All,

I'm generating timestamps (file creation timestamps) for all the files in a directory. I need to compare all the timestamps.
for example if i have 4 files and their timestamps are 20091125114556,
20091125114556,20091125114556,20091125114556 respectively.

I need to differentiate atleast secs portion to recognize the file. So what i'm going to do is if all timestamps are same then i will modify seconds portion. But my question here is how to compare these timestamps respect to their corresponding files.?

Please suggest a way but not the solution.

Thanks in advance,
