      If you have the latest 0407 patches then there is a directory
      /.../jasspa/contrib (or c:/Program Files/JASSPA/MicroEmacs/contrib/

      as below:-

      ; insert-date; Insert the current date into the text.
      define-macro insert-date
      ; ascii-time returns a formatted string in #l9
      insert-string #l9

      global-bind-key insert-date "<My fav. key>"

      "M-x insert-date" when I want the date and
      "M-x insert-file-name" when I want the
