I was recently involved in an activity that required keeping track of notes with timestamps. I decided to do it in EMACS. Here’s what I stuffed in my .emacs init file:
;; Insert the current time in the current buffer (defun timestamp() (interactive) ; If you want to insert date and time, you can use: (insert(format-time-string "%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S "))) ;; Bind Ctrl-T ("transpose") to the timestamp function - need a better key binding (global-set-key (kbd "C-t") 'timestamp)
Incidentally, I also needed to save the file to DOS format instead of Unix format. To do that:
then use “dos” (or “mac” or “unix”).
