I have been using TCC since it was known as 4Dos. I have created aliases for adding files to a zipped file.

wz="c:\Program Files (x86)\Winzip\wzzip.exe"
zm=wz -m %1 %2 (where %1 is the name of the zipped file to create/use and the %2 are the files to add/move.)
zmt=wz -m %1 (I need code to add the date and time to %1) %2

I would like to make the alias create the zipped file with its name myfile071320111115.zip
Where the 07132011 is the date and the 1115 is the time.
I would like tcc to be able to do this without the need for me to do it manually like Ren myfile.* myfile071320111115.*

Any help would be appreciated.

I'd prefer the format 20110713111508 (yyyymmddhhmmss) because then its
easy to sort the files chronoöogically, and adding seconds, your less
likely to end up with 2 identical names.

Well, you could start with something like this:

Code:
alias zmt=`echo wz -m %@path[%1]%@name[%1]-%@format[02,%_month]%@format[02,%_day]%[_year]%@format[02,%_hour]%@format[02,%_minute].zip`
Test that, and if it gives the kind of filenames you want, remove the ECHO.

Just in case you missed it, the command
would use the variable _DATETIME to get the current date and time.

alias zmt=`wz -m %1%_DATETIME`
