- Subject: How exactly does ctime work?
We had a weird incident involving ctime changing unexpectedly when
mtime did not.
On a normal UNIX system, we'd immediately say somebody changed the
file and set mtime back, but on Cygwin, ctime appears to be synthetic.
How exactly does ctime work on Cygwin? I can't find any useful
documentation except for some mailing list discussions circa 2005 that
leave me with no answers.
