send date and time to a template to print

March 25, 2013 | 4:32 pm

Hi all,

I need some help to configure MAX to do this automatically:

At the the start of the patch (first bang) the date and time of the bang should be sent to a file (if possible a word template document). At the stop of the patch the date and time of the stop should be sent to the same file. This file needs to automatically be printed on paper.

Capturing the date is no problem with the date object and sending the print instruction to the file neither (I’m using tap.applescript to call a print document applescript). My main problem is sending the start and end time data to the file.

Any idea on how this could be done?

I figure I would need to use the shell object, but my scripting capabilities are pretty basic. If anybody could help it would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
