Summary0000797: Varying semantics of Unix.utimes
DescriptionFull_Name: Zhe Yang
Version: 3.04
OS: Windows
Submission from: saul.cis.upenn.edu (158.130.12.4)


On the Windows platform, the Unix.utimes function behaves differently
in the native, MSVC-based version and in the cygwin-based version. The Posix
interpretation of utimes allows setting the time of read-only files, if the UID
of the process is the same as the owner of the file. Using the cygwin-based
version, utimes succeeds in this case, but using the MSVC-based version, utimes
fails with an exception.

Could the utimes in the MSVC-based version of Ocaml be corrected?

Thanks, Zhe

To be fixed some day, but we first need to understand how Cygwin does it.
