It is often desired to locate files (directory entries) that are either
older or newer than another file. I can do this today using the cumbersome
syntax below:
/[D%@FILEDATE[ref_file1]@%@FILETIME[ref_file1],%@FILEDATE[ref_file2]@%@FILETIME[ref_file2]]
TOUCH already supports using a reference file (option switch /R). I suggest
a new date range option: /[Rref_file1,ref_file2] with the same modifier
syntax as an explicit date@time.
There are many operations that would benefit, for example, catalog
updates and downloads.
