Current date as filename

5 posts in this topic

Im making text files using the FileWriteLine command. Is there any way

to use the Current Time, Day as the name of the text files?

This is not possible:

$file = @MON & @YEAR
FileWriteLine($file, "Line1")

First learn computer science and all the theory. Next develop a programming style. Then forget all that and just hack. -George Carrette[sub]GD Keylogger Creator (never released)[/sub][sub]Garena Autojoin v3.0[/sub]

Try using something like:

#Include <Date.au3>
Local $datime = StringReplace(_NowCalcDate(), '/', '-') & '_' & StringReplace(_NowTime(5), ':', '-')
ConsoleWrite('The filename will be: ' & $datime & @LF)
$datime = StringReplace(_NowCalcDate(), '/', '') & '-' & StringReplace(_NowTime(5), ':', '')
ConsoleWrite('It could also be: ' & $datime & @LF)

The remplaces are obligatory as Windows won't tolerate / or: in a filename. Also using the formats above will allow you to sort on creation time naturally.

Why using UDF if you need to replace output after?

Just rewrite it as you need :D

Here is want you want:

$filenameformat = @YEAR & "-" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "_" & @HOUR & ";" & @MIN & ";" & @SEC ;output = yyyy-mm-dd_hh;mm;ss
;~ $filenameformat = @YEAR & @MON & @MDAY & "_" & @HOUR & @MIN & @SEC ;output = yyyymmdd_hhmmss

$file = $filenameformat & ".txt"
$o_file = FileOpen($file, 1+8)
FileWriteLine($o_file , "your text here")
FileClose($o_file)

Oui bien sûr ! C'était juste pour illustrer que l'UDF en question regorge de possibilités de présentation et de traitement de date/heure.

Edit: (mixing languages: a bit late probably) yes, obviously. My point was merely to illustrate the numerous date/time formatting/processing possibilities of the Date UDF.
