TIMESTAMP
Print a Timestamp


TIMESTAMP, a C library which can print or return the current YMDHMS date as a timestamp.

This is useful when documenting the run of a program. By including a timestamp, the output of the program will always contain a clear indication of when it was created. Other indicators, such as the file timestamp, may be misleading or subject to unintentional modification.
