COOKTIME(1)		    General Commands Manual		   COOKTIME(1)

NAME
	cooktime - set file times

SYNOPSIS
	cooktime [ option...  ]	filename...
	cooktime -Help
	cooktime -VERSion

DESCRIPTION
	The cooktime program is	used to	set the	modified time or access	time
	of a file.  This can be	used to	defend against unwanted	logical
	dependencies when making "minor" changes to files.

	If no option is	specified, the default action is as if "-Modify	now"
	was specified.

OPTIONS
	The following options are understood.

	-Access	date
		This option may	be used	to set the last-access time of the
		files.	The date is relatively free-format; rember to use
		quotes to insulate spaces from the shell.

	-Modify	date
		This option may	be used	to set the last-modify time of the
		files.	The date is relatively free-format; rember to use
		quotes to insulate spaces from the shell.

	-Time-Stamp-Granularity	seconds
		This option may	be used	to specify the granularity of the
		filesystem's timestamps, otherwise a default value of 1	second
		is used.

	-Report
		When use alone,	produces a listing of access times and modify
		times for the named files.  When used with -Access or -Modify,
		produces a listing of the changes made.

	-Help
		Give some information on how to	use the	cooktime command.

	Any other option will generate a diagnostic error.

	All options may	be abbreviated;	the abbreviation is documented as the
	upper case letters, all	lower case letters and underscores (_) are
	optional.  You must use	consecutive sequences of optional letters.

	All options are	case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
	lower case or a	combination of both, case is not important.

	For example: the arguments "-help", "-HEL" and "-h" are	all
	interpreted to mean the	-Help option.  The argument "-hlp" will	not be
	understood, because consecutive	optional characters were not supplied.

	Options	and other command line arguments may be	mixed arbitrarily on
	the command line.

	The GNU	long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
	cooktime are long, this	means ignoring the extra leading '-'.  The
	"--option=value" convention is also understood.

EXIT STATUS
	The cooktime command will exit with a status of	1 on any error.	 The
	cooktime command will only exit	with a status of 0 if there are	no
	errors.
