re: Future proof your footer's copyright date with the current year VIEW POST


C or C++ (preprocessor) DATE_YEAR is macro that resolves to an ascii string for the current year in which the code was compiled.

#define DATE_YEAR (__DATE__ + sizeof(__DATE__) - 5)

cout << "Copyright " << DATE_YEAR << " Foobar Inc. All rights reserved.";

printf("Copyright %s Foobar Inc. All rights reserved.", DATE_YEAR);
