GNU "touch" : Clearer Help for "-d" option

Hi Folks,

When you do  "touch.exe --help"  , two of the lines output are these:

 -d, --date=STRING      parse STRING and use it instead of current time
 -t STAMP               use MMDDhhmm[[CC]YY][.ss] instead of current time

Question 1: Is "STRING"  the same as "STAMP" above ?

Question 2: How about an example.  Many people struggle with this ?
  For example, should "touch.exe --date=010101012000 " work
  Also, is it  "touch.exe  -d 010101012000 "
  "touch.exe --date= 010101012000 "

  ... too darn hard, without an example.

Keep up the good work,
