Copy timestamps between a file or multiple files
Authored by: barefootguru on Jul 28, '09 03:13:24PM

It's not mentioned in the article but from looking at the scripts this appears to be changing only the modification timestamp, not the creation timestamp?

Copy timestamps between a file or multiple files

It's my understanding that Unix doesn't jeep track of a file's creation time--only its access and modification times--so there's no mechanism to change it.
