After I've written data to a file on the SD card, is it possible to set the file create date and time?
I hate that my logged files always have a date of 1/1/2001 12:00AM.
Thanks.

Jeremy,

Files written or updated will get the current "system" real time. The issue is, it you don't setup the systems real time and use an interupt to update it then the time stamp that will be used will be 1/1/2001 12:00AM. There are two things you can do to solve this.

1) Setup the system time and use an interrupt to keep it updated. See here for details: http://avrhelp.mcselec.com/index.html

2) Setup the clock but with out the irq and just set DATE$ & TIME$ to what you want just prior to writing.

-Glen

Hi,

as Glena said, AVR-DOS uses the "system-Time" generated by the "CONFIG CLOCK" command. If you can't use the SOFT - Option, because you have not the appropriate timer, you have provide the data/time anyway with an other method.
In this case you have to use the USER Option of the CONFIG CLOCK command. The compiler generates the variables _sec, _min, _hour, _day, _month, _year. If you change this variables to the actual time in your code, then AVR-DOS uses this information for the file-date. You can also use the Date$ and Time$ command.
