NoTouchEdit edits a file without updating its timestamp.
> NoTouchEdit FILE [/COPY] [/EDITOR:PROGRAM] [/MIN|/MAX|/HIDE] FILE is the file to modify /COPY makes a copy of the file before editing, then copies the timestamp from the copy to the modified file. Without this switch, the timestamp is kept in a variable in memory instead, which requires less disk space and doesn't add wear to the drive, but if the computer crashes in the moment between the file being saved and its timestamp being restored, it'll be lost /EDITOR specfies the program with which to open the file The editor doesn't have to be an interactive program /MIN run the editor minimized /MAX run the editor maximized /HIDE run the editor hidden Window control might not work with every editor e.g.: > NoTouchEdit r:\test.png /hide /editor:crop Crops the image "r:\test.png" using a hidden window e.g.: > NoTouchEdit x:\foobar.blah /copy /editor:c:\tools\baz.exe Makes an empty dummy file "x:\foobar.blah.ntebak" and sets its timestamp, opens "x:\foobar.blah" in/with "c:\tools\baz.exe" and waits until it exits, restores the timestamp for "x:\foobar.blah" and deletes the backup "x:\foobar.blah.ntebak"
