TOUCH(1)		    General Commands Manual		      TOUCH(1)

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 ex-
       ists, 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.
