NAME
     utimes - set file times

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/time.h>

     utimes(file, tvp)
     char *file;
     struct timeval tvp[2];

DESCRIPTION
     The utimes call uses the "accessed" and "updated" times in
     that order from the tvp vector to set the corresponding
     recorded times for file.

     The caller must be the owner of the file or the super-user.
     The "inode-changed" time of the file is set to the current
     time.

RETURN VALUE
     Upon successful completion, a value of 0 is returned.  Oth-
     erwise, a value of -1 is returned and errno is set to indi-
     cate the error.

		    acters, or an entire path name exceeded 1023
		    characters.

     [ENOENT]	    The named file does not exist.

     [ELOOP]	    Too many symbolic links were encountered in

     [EPERM]	    The process is not super-user and not the
