    Question auto build date

    does anyone know how I can include the current build date as a variable in my code???

    I'd like to use it as a somewhat dirty revision numbering system.

    thanks

    Matt

    const char *build_date = __DATE__;

    Should work in any ANSI-C compiler

    There's also __TIME__ as well
