  • Copy(or get) timestamp of a specified file for "touch" operation

    Hi there:

    I found the "touch" feature recently, and found it help my daily works.

    But, can you add a feature to get the timestamp of some specified file then later on I can use this timestamp to touch some other specified file (on the same side, or the opposite side) just like using "last touch".

    Hello Jack,

    Could you go into further detail on how you would use a Copy/Paste Timestamp command?

      I've also wanted to be able to do this on numerous occasions. Let's say that Iv'e recompiled three different utilities, and I want all three utilities to have the same date and time as the last one that was built. It would be ideal if I could copy the timestamp from the last one built, then choose the "last touch" option on the touch dialog to apply the same timestamp to the other two files.

        As my imagination: Maybe
        1. You can have a "Copy Timestamp" on each side, if there's just one file selected (on either or both sides).
        2. Then make a new "radio" option on default fields of "Used Copyed Timestamp".
        3. Keep that timestamp available until some other "Copy Timestamp" replace it.
