Timestamps or portions of timestamps are frequently added to file names. The following examples show how time stamps can be appended to files and how file names can be searched for specific timestamps.
Exhibit 14.5. Example for using timestamps
gettimestamp ~my_timestamp; # generate current timestamp foreach $local_item in @local_list begin strprint ~new_name, ~my_timestamp, "_", $item.name; #prepend timestamp to file name end gettimestamp ~my_timestamp, decr, day, 1; #generate timestamp that is a day old foreach $local_item in @local_list begin strprint ~search_name, "*", ~my_timestamp, "*"; #generate search string if ~search_name eq $local_item.name begin #search for files with this timestamp as part of their filename end end
