add timestamp during compile

Hello,

 

I am looking for a way to include a timestamp in the code that I compile.  I want to assign an address in flash of say 4 bytes and put the date and time of compile into it automatically.(perhaps UTC time or some other format).  This way when I am looking at the firmware on a chip later I can determine when the code was compiled that is currently loaded.

 

Thank you for your help.

 

PS, I am programming a 9s08SH32 part if that makes any difference.
