In Cygwin (and on some, not all, Linux file systems) the command
$ stat filename
shows all of Access, Modify, Change and Birth times of a file.
The command
$ touch [options] filename
will alter some or all of Access, Modify, Change times, as specified
in [options].
Is it possible in Cygwin (or for that matter in Windows) to alter the
Birth time of a file or directory?
Thank you.
