Setting a modify time stamp // update time

dear gang

as most of you know theres a little way to set a current date, in a rich text file. and get that info in the text file into flash.
or even just type in the latest modified date into the textfield

but i was thinking maybe there is another way, strictly in flash. with code.

now i was wondering if there was a way to set the last modification date directly in flash with the getDate instructions.

i want to use this to display the latest update time.

i know there are numerous way to accomplish this with text files / php.
but i’d like to know if theres a way in flash
