an advanced interface which allows the user to dynamically modify certain date and time components.

Oftentimes it is desirable to exclusively change very specific components of a file's modification, access, or change time; however, the method provided by the conventional touch utility appears inadequate for this basic task. Moreover, easily modifying a file's change time is not possible at all. Stroke offers a solution by providing a user with an advanced interface which also allows her to utilize an extensive syntax to dynamically specify certain date and time components to be altered. All in all stroke can be seen as a potent touch alternative that leaves a user with more options and freedom. Give your files a hefty stroke, don't just touch them.
