Technically speaking, this isn't what 'touch' does. If the file already
exists, then "touch" does not clear its contents. In order to emulate
"touch", which creates the file if it doesn't exist, but merely updates the
last modified date/time if it does exist already, I believe the mode string
should be "a".
