    SYNOPSIS

           touch [OPTION]... FILE...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Update  the  access  and modification times of each FILE to the current
           time.
    
           A FILE argument that does not exist is created empty, unless -c  or  -h
           is supplied.
    
           A  FILE  argument  string of - is handled specially and causes touch to
           change the times of the file associated with standard output.
    
           Mandatory arguments to long options are  mandatory  for  short  options
           too.
    
           -a     change only the access time
    
           -c, --no-create
                  do not create any files
    
           -d, --date=STRING
                  parse STRING and use it instead of current time
    
           -f     (ignored)
    
           -h, --no-dereference
                  affect each symbolic link instead of any referenced file (useful
                  only on systems that can change the timestamps of a symlink)
    
           -m     change only the modification time
    
           -r, --reference=FILE
                  use this file's times instead of current time
    
           -t STAMP
                  use [[CC]YY]MMDDhhmm[.ss] instead of current time
    
           --time=WORD
                  change the specified time: WORD is access, atime, or use: equiv-
                  alent to -a WORD is modify or mtime: equivalent to -m
    
           --help display this help and exit
    
           --version
                  output version information and exit
    
           Note that the -d and -t options accept different time-date formats.
    
    
    

    DATE STRING

           The  --date=STRING  is  a mostly free format human readable date string
           such as "Sun, 29 Feb 2004 16:21:42 -0800" or "2004-02-29  16:21:42"  or
