in reply to Thread safe equivalent of LINUX touch command

Does utime do what you need?

the help says :-

For example, this code has the same effect as the Unix touch(1) comman +d when the files already exist and belong to the user running the program: #!/usr/bin/perl $atime = $mtime = time; utime $atime, $mtime, @ARGV;

Don't know about thread safety though, but why would you care ?

    utime will not create the file if it does not exist; that is one difference with touch.
