    This allows us replace perl when getting the mtime of a file because
    of time zone conversions, though at the moment only one platform which
    does this has been identified: Cygwin when used with ActiveState Perl
    (as usual).
    
    The output format is:
    
        <mtime1> TAB <filename1> <LF>
        <mtime2> TAB <filename2> <LF>
        ...
    
    which, if only mtime is needed can be parsed with cut(1):
    
        test-chmtime -v +0 filename1 | cut -f 1
    
    Also, the change adds a description of programs features, with examples.
