NAME
     utime - set file times

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

DESCRIPTION

     The utime() function sets the access and modification times of the named

     If the times are specified (the timep argument is non-NULL) the caller
     must be the owner of the file or be the super-user.

     If the times are not specified (the timep argument is NULL) the caller
     must be the owner of the file, have permission to write the file, or be
     the super-user.

ERRORS
     The utime() function may fail and set errno for any of the errors speci-
     fied for the library function utimes(2).

SEE ALSO
     utimes(2),  stat(2)

HISTORY
     A utime() function appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX.
