Hello,I was wondering if it was possible to store or retrieve the date and/or checksum of the SOF file running on the FPGA. I would like to be able to read it using an external processor and display it to the user to verify what we are running. Currently I use the processor to read ROM where i have a hex file that basically has my version number. The only problem with this is that i have to remember to change it every time i enhance(fix a bug in) my project. Anyone try this or get something like this working. Any Help would be much appreciated. Thanks Matt

I think this thread from a while ago covers what you want.http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1925&highlight=timestamp I've attached a version of the script that I use on all my designs too.
