Issue #7106 has been updated by kwilczynski (Krzysztof Wilczynski).


Hey,

Thanks a million Luis! :-)

It would be amazing to get File#lutime added now so *nix / POSIX compliant environment will benefit from it, and then we can look (under a separate ticket) how to add File#symlink? for Windows platform (lack of it is lingering for quite some time now).

Again, thanks for help to everyone who helped :-)

Feature #7106: FileUtils.touch should allow touching the symlink itself rather than the file the link points to

Most systems support POSIX lutimes sys call that allows a symlink to be touched. I'd like to see this feature implemented.
Unfortunately I'd like to see this feature on Solaris as soon as possible but I cannot see lutimes syscall supported there.
