automatic control of generation date and version of the bit file

Hello,

 

Is there any way how we can track bit file creation date? because I have defined inside of my  design 4 registers for version date and version number, but every time I want to generate the new bit file I need to change date and version. Without automatic control there is almost no sense to do that. 

Can somebody please help me with some links. ideas how it can be done?

I'm using ISE 13.4, VHDL..

Thanks!

The only reasonable way to do this would be to have a top level generic which represents the date and version, and have a script which sets that generic and runs XST.
