NAME

futimes - change access and/or modification times of an open file  

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/time.h>

int futimes(int fd, const struct timeval tv[2]);
 

DESCRIPTION

futimes() changes the access and modification times of a file in the same way as utimes(2), with the difference that the file whose timestamps are to be changed is specified via a file descriptor, fd, rather than via a pathname.  

RETURN VALUE

On success, zero is returned. On error, -1 is returned, and errno is set appropriately.  

ERRORS

Errors are as for utimes(2), with the following additions:
EBADF
fd is not a valid file descriptor.
ENOSYS
The /proc file system could not be accessed.
 

VERSIONS

futimes() is available since glibc 2.3.  

CONFORMING TO

4.2BSD. Other than Linux, this function is only available on the BSDs.
