;;; Commentary:

;; A template in a file can be updated with a new time stamp when
;; you save the file.  For example:
;;     static char *ts = "sdmain.c Time-stamp: <1996-08-13 10:20:51 gildea>";
;; See the top of `time-stamp.el' for another example.

;; To use time-stamping, add this line to your .emacs file:
;;     (add-hook 'write-file-hooks 'time-stamp)
;; Now any time-stamp templates in your files will be updated automatically.

;; See the documentation for the functions `time-stamp'
;; and `time-stamp-toggle-active' for details.

;;; Change Log:

;; Originally based on the 19 Dec 88 version of
;;   date.el by John Sturdy <mcvax!harlqn.co.uk!jcgs@uunet.uu.net>
;; Version 2, January 1995: replaced functions with %-escapes
;; $Id: time-stamp.el,v 1.23 1996/12/17 00:19:01 rms Exp rms $

a time stamp template that would otherwise have been updated.")

If `error', the format is not used.  If `ask', the user is queried about

The value may be a string or a list.  Lists are supported only for
backward compatibility; see variable `time-stamp-old-format-warn'.

A string is used with `format-time-string'.
For example, to get the format used by the `date' command,
use \"%3a %3b %2d %H:%M:%S %Z %y\".

In addition to the features of `format-time-string',
you can use the following %-constructs:

%f  file name without directory
%F  full file name
%h  mail host name
%s  system name
%u  user's login name")

A template in a file can be automatically updated with a new time stamp

Normally the template must appear in the first 8 lines of a file and

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
