Timestamp filename method?

Question asked by VRFuser on May 7, 1998
Maybe this has been addressed before.  Is there
any easy way to generate PC filenames based on
on the current date and time?  What I would like
is to have a base filename filter that then has
the date and time of the test appended to it.

An example filename I would like is:


filter="Testd" (set by the user)

The month, day, and year are easy, but there
doesn't seem an easy way to get the current
time in the string format needed for a filename.

Any suggestions?
