I really don't much care about the timestamp. I'm using touch as the quickest easiest way to create an empty file.

    the quickest easiest way to create an empty file.

    Quickest? Definitely not. Easiest? Your call :)

    cmpthese 1, { a=>q[ qx[ touch junka.$_ ] for 1 .. 1000 ], b=>q[ do{ open my $f, ">junkb.$_" } for 1 .. 1000 ], };; s/iter a b a 8.83 -- -95% b 0.421 1997% --

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      Certainly quickest for the programmer. This has to create 5 sentinel files every 3 months.

      Love that profiling snippet. Gonna have to pull that for meeting arguments ;)

    Are you seriously arguing that using:
    `touch $file`
    to create an empty file should be preferred to, for example:
    { open(my $fh, '>', $file) or die "error creating empty '$file': $!"; }
    on the grounds that it is "quicker and easier" to write?

    If you are that stretched for time, how on earth do you expect to find time to write your proposed test mock framework?

      Good grief. I'm in fact not "seriously arguing" anything at all, least of all what someone 'should' be doing.
