utime.h(7POSIX) POSIX Programmer's Manual utime.h(7POSIX)
This manual page is part of the POSIX Programmer's Manual. The Linux implementation of
this interface may differ (consult the corresponding Linux manual page for details of
Linux behavior), or the interface may not be implemented on Linux.
utime.h — access and modification times structure
The <utime.h> header shall declare the utimbuf structure, which shall include the follow‐
time_t actime Access time.
time_t modtime Modification time.
The times shall be measured in seconds since the Epoch.
The <utime.h> header shall define the time_t type as described in <sys/types.h>.
The following shall be declared as a function and may also be defined as a macro. A func‐
tion prototype shall be provided.
int utime(const char *, const struct utimbuf *);
The following sections are informative.
The utime() function only allows setting file timestamps to the nearest second. Applica‐
tions should use the utimensat() function instead. See <sys/stat.h>.
The <utime.h> header may be removed in a future version.
