Saving to file with a timestamp

I have a flowgraph working that I want to use to save data to a file. I
would like the file name to update each time, ideally with a time stamp
as
part of the name. Is this possible directly from GRC of will I need to
write
a block?

There’s been a thread on exactly that a few days ago [1].

Short version: maybe there’s something not too complex you can do in
GRC, but if you want to do something that looks like a program, you
might just want to program something :wink:

Greetings,
Marcus

There is the tagged_file_sink:

http://gnuradio.org/doc/doxygen/classgr_1_1blocks_1_1tagged__file__sink.html

This is an early implementation of using stream tags for controlling
things
like this, so you might want to use this as a guide.

Hey, Mike,

I’ve used this for this same thing-

Seems like a simple solution for your problem.

Later,
George

You can also use some Python string concatenation to add a Timestamp to
your file name in GRC. GRC is actually quite liberal in what it will "
allow" you to add in this way.
