TOUCH(1)                                                 TOUCH(1)

     NAME
          touch - set file modification date

     SYNOPSIS
          touch [ -c ] file ...

     DESCRIPTION
          Touch attempts to set the modified date of each file. This
          is done by reading a character from the file and writing it
          back.

          If a file does not exist, an attempt will be made to create
          it unless the -c option is specified.
