Compilation Timestamp

Some programs do print the time they were compiled. And I am sure they do not add it by hand. I think there is macro or something used by gcc or make .. etc to to that.
So does anyone knows what is it

ummm, seeing how its only "some" programs, i believe they would have added it by hand

probably from the scripts known as the all mighty ./configure

thus i think the macro would be m4?

(look into automake / autoconf I'm sure the answer lies there)

I think this is what you are looking for:
        char *compiled=  __DATE__ " @ " __TIME__;
