Defect Report:

This section states "The ftruncate() function marks the st_ctime
and st_mtime fields of the file."

wording: ".. shall mark for update the st_ctime ... fields of the

Are these phrases "marks the ... fields of the file" and "shall
mark for update.." equivalent?

Interpretation response

The meaning of the phases is the same.  This is an editorial oversight 
and the committee has requested that the project editor change the
first occurance to "...shall mark for update.." in section line 1017.
