dbase4 file modifications by cshell

        Thanks to all who answered my previous dbase4 from C output question.

        Here's another dbase problem:  Is it possible to alter a dbase file
using a cshell program written in unix?  For example, say you created output
monthly by running sysinfo on all the systems in a particular network and
stored that information in a file that is delimited and ready to be appended
into a .dbf file.  However, most of the info remains the same.  Is there
a way to add the new info in some automated manner from outside dbase4 or
does it *have* to be done by hand?

1. Modifying files while retaining file modification times

I want to do something to a file, say encrypt it, without changing its
modification time.  I suppose I can write a script to get the time
from ls, do the modification, then restore the time (after converting
it to numerical format) with /usr/5bin/touch, but I'm hoping that
there is an easier way.  How about it?  (Csh solutions preferred.)
