# Eclipse with Texlipse plugin - adding sytem time into generated PDF file after compilation

My question is focused on the possibility of an Eclipse IDE and its plugin Texlipse. After generating the PDF file, I would like to add the prefix (or something similar), which would include system time. I hope my question is at least somewhat understandable. I think that a similar problem solved everyone, who must distribute pdf files between other colleagues. I know it's a stupid way versioning, but simple.

Thanks

You can put `\currenttime` in your tex file, e.g. in header or footer, to get the compile time in the pdf.
I'm afraid it is not possible in Texlipse, since you could not set the compile option in Texlipse. Btw, if you use linux and can write compile the tex file from a console, you can use the follwing: `pdflatex --output-dir=output/ --jobname=``date +%d_%m_%y-%H_%M_%S`` testtex.tex` But this way will produce so many files. (for each compile times, you get new file and the old files are not deleted) –  lazyboy Dec 15 '12 at 20:46
