CDATE Version 1.4
Purpose: Changes the time/date stamp on a file.

Format: CDATE filespec [time] [date]

Remarks: The given filespec has its time/date stamp set
to [time] and [date]. If either [time] or
[date] is not specified, the current system
setting is used for that parameter. Thus


would set the time/date stamp of the file to the current system time/date.

[time] and [date] may be given in any any
order, CDATE will figure out which is which.

CDATE does not check if [date] is a real date,
be careful or you could have files with dates
like 02-32-87 or whatever else you may mis-
type. Using weird dates won't hurt anything,
CDATE will go about its business and set the

date to what you specify. DOS usually won't
mind these strange dates either.

CDATE looks for ':' as the delimiter for times. Either
'/' or '-' may be used for dates.

Filespec may contain wildcards.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
