I would like to clone only the create date and the filenames in source and destination are different. The name part of it is the same, it's the extension that isn't. AVI videos in one directory, MP4 in another.
So I wanted to use
touch --reference=file1 file2.
works great on one file but I have about 100. I do have a text file containing all the source filenames. Oh and lots of them have spaces and apostrophes in them too.
