Write current date/time to a file as it is saved
Submitted by jhaefner on Sunday, 23 April, 2017 - 01:00
I am writing html and would like to write "Updated: ...the date of last modification.." on to the html file in a particular place. So, after testing that the file has been modified, I would like to write the current day and time to the file immediately after I tell Jedit to save the file, but before it is actually saved. Possibly, the solution would be to point my usual "save file" shortcut to a macro that writes the date/time info where I want it and then does the jedit save file command. Has anyone done this? If not, can any one point me in a direction to get me started? I have done simple ".bsh" macros, but nothing more complex. I am aware of Robert Schwenn's 2008 "insert_simple_date.bsh".

Thanks in advance. Jim
