Unlike the touch POSIX utility this does not create the file if it does not exist. Use file_create() to do this if needed.

file_touch(path, access_time = Sys.time(),
  modification_time = access_time)

Arguments

path

A character vector of one or more paths.

access_time, modification_time

The times to set, inputs will be coerced to POSIXct objects.

Examples

file_create("foo") file_touch("foo", "2018-01-01") file_info("foo")[c("access_time", "modification_time", "change_time", "birth_time")]
#> # A tibble: 1 x 4 #> access_time modification_time change_time #> <dttm> <dttm> <dttm> #> 1 2018-01-01 00:00:00 2018-01-01 00:00:00 2019-05-06 21:29:51 #> # … with 1 more variable: birth_time <dttm>
