Which timestamp? I assume you mean mtime (modified) and not ctime (created) or atime (access)? (The latter are probably Win95/LFN/FAT32 only.) And presumably all of these are "local" (non-UTC) time only.

(RBIL)
* GET/SET FILE'S LAST-WRITTEN DATE AND TIME
* INT 21 - Windows95 - LONG FILENAME - EXTENDED GET/SET FILE ATTRIBUTES

(DJGPP libc.info, funcs sometimes supported in other C compilers too)
* getftime
* setftime

* sys/stat
* mktime
* utime

Never heard of it. Unlikely that anyone here has either. But "Windows"?? Is this cross-compiled? Is it really DOS (MZ) .EXE or truly something else (PE)? Is the binary running atop raw DOS (which? MS-DOS 7.1?) or Win95 or WinXP or ...?
