I would like to be able to add code line number and build dates into my debug output, which I output on the UART of an LPC111x using sprintf.

I included __LINE__ and __TIMESTAMP__ in sprintf arguments and #warning, but they are not recognized.

sprintf(UART_string,"Example: __TIMESTAMP__ __LINE__ \r\n");
Are they available and how do I activate them?

Are there alternative ways to get release time stamp into debug information?
