    I needed to change the timestamp of a directory structure of very high
depth. and in each level there are lots of files and folders.
So I expected a recursive operation of "touch" (like -R in chmod or in chown

    But surprisingly discovered, that "touch" command has no such option
available. So I had to go for a script like..
"find . | touch -am *".

    Please consider adding such a recursive option to "touch" & I think for
that the option -R can be used comfortably.
