Timestamping of files possible?

Hi there,

I was wondering if the following is possible in IDEA:

Whenever you save a file, the current timestamp is inserted in some comment,
e.g. if you specify:

/**

  • Last modified: %t

*/

then %t is replaced by the current timestamp whenever you save.

Is that possible?

Thank you,
Philipp

It should be pretty easy to write a plugin that does this. I doubt it'll
end up as core functionality in IDEA however since it's quite a
specialised requirement.

Use Ant and it's filtering.

Won't that set timestamp to last build, not last save?

good point, didn't think too hard about it obviously.
