Obtaining VMS c program compile date/time

Is there a way to get the compile date and time from a VMS executable image (such as that displayed when performing an ANALYZE/IMAGE or ANALYZE/OBJECT), and use it in a printf() from within the program ? I know I could probably use a /DEFINE on the cc command line to define a date, but if there is an offset defined in SYS.STB or a header file somewhere that would point to where this information is stored in the executable image file itself, I would prefer to use that.  Thanks!

You can use the predefined date and time macros __DATE__ and __TIME__  (Note: There are 2 "_"s both before and after the macro names) in your printf statement.  Example:

#include <stdio.h>

void main()
{
 printf("This program was compiled %s at %s\n", __DATE__, __TIME__);
}
