 NAME
      utimes - set file access and modification times

 SYNOPSIS
      #include <&lt&lt&lt;sys/time.h>&gt&gt&gt;

      int utimes(const char *path, const struct timeval times[2]);

 DESCRIPTION
      The utimes() function sets the access and modification times of the
      file pointed to by the path argument to the value of the times
      argument. The utimes() function allows time specifications accurate to
      the microsecond.

      For utimes(), the times argument is an array of timeval structures.
      The first array member represents the date and time of last access,
      and the second  member  represents the date and time of last
      modification.  The times in the timeval structure are measured in
      seconds and microseconds since the Epoch, although rounding toward the
      nearest second may occur.

      If the times argument is a null pointer, the access and  modification
      times of the file are set to the current time. The effective user ID
      of the process must be the same as the owner of the file, or must have
      write access to the file or appropriate privileges to use this call in
      this manner. Upon completion, utimes() will mark the time of the last
      file status change, st_ctime, for update.

 RETURN VALUE
      Upon successful completion, 0 is returned. Otherwise, -1 is returned
      and errno is set to indicate the error, and the file times will not be
      affected.

 ERRORS
      The utimes() function will fail if:

	   [EACCES]		    Search permission is denied by a
				    component of the path prefix; or the
				    times argument is a null pointer and the
				    effective user ID of the process does
				    not match the owner of the file and
				    write access is denied.

	   [ELOOP]		    Too many symbolic links were encountered
				    in resolving path.

	   [ENAMETOOLONG]	    The length of the path argument exceeds
				    {PATH_MAX} or a pathname component is
				    longer than {NAME_MAX}.

	   [ENOENT]		    A component of path does not name an
				    existing file or path is an empty
				    string.

	   [ENOTDIR]		    A component of the path prefix is not a
				    directory.

	   [EPERM]		    The times argument is not a null pointer
				    and the calling process' effective user
				    ID has write access to the file but does
				    not match the owner of the file and the
				    calling process does not have the
				    appropriate privileges.

	   [EROFS]		    The file system containing the file is
				    read-only.

      The utimes() function may fail if:

	   [ENAMETOOLONG]	    Pathname resolution of a symbolic link
				    produced an intermediate result whose
				    length exceeds {PATH_MAX}.
