NAME
       touch - update date last modified of a file

SYNOPSIS
       touch [ -c ] [ -f ] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       Touch  attempts	to set the modified date of each file.	If a file exists, 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.  The -f option will
       attempt to force the touch in spite of read and write permissions on a file.
