       futimes, lutimes - change file timestamps

       #include <sys/time.h>

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

       int lutimes(const char *filename, const struct timeval tv[2]);

   Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

       futimes(), lutimes(): _BSD_SOURCE

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

       lutimes() changes the access and modification times of a	 file  in  the
       same way as utimes(2), with the difference that if filename refers to a
       symbolic link, then the link is not dereferenced:  instead,  the	 time‐
       stamps of the symbolic link are changed.

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

       Errors  are  as	for  utimes(2),	 with  the  following  additions   for

       EBADF  fd is not a valid file descriptor.

       ENOSYS The /proc file system could not be accessed.

       futimes()  is  available since glibc 2.3.  lutimes() is available since
       glibc 2.6, and is implemented using the utimensat(2) system call, which
       is supported since kernel 2.6.22.

       These  functions	 are not specified in any standard.  Other than Linux,
       they are only available on the BSDs.
