in thread retaining TIMESTAMPS

The script I am running on my files just do minor cosmetic changes to them. I need to keep track of the major changes made to these files and also when I made them so that I would know which is the latest and greatest. Thanks, Xlim

    Fair enough I suppose but surely a versioning system would be more suitable than relying on the date stamp? There is no reason why your script, which is already modifying content, can't update a minor number on the version at the same time.
