See the current Perl documentation for utime.

Here is our local, out-dated (pre-5.6) version:

utime - set a file's last access and modify times

utime LIST

Changes the access and modification times on each file of a list of files. The first two elements of the list must be the NUMERICAL access and modification times, in that order. Returns the number of files successfully changed. The inode modification time of each file is set to the current time. This code has the same effect as the `` touch'' command if the files already exist:

    $now = time;
    utime $now, $now, @ARGV;
