Try the Date keyword:


If that's not the format you want, write C code into your project
that transforms it into the format you want.

Don't try to modify a file's data in a pre-commit hook. While your
modified file will end up in the repository, the user's working copy
will retain the unmodified file, but will think it has the same
version as the repository. This will break subsequent diffs.
