Subject: How does SCX TimeStamp get computed?

Foxites,

I want to have some version control for the objects in my form and
I thought it best to use the timestamp and code in the SCX as the reference.

What I figure on doing is have the main.prg of MyProject, do a COPY FILE
of the SCX into MyProjectFormBackUp.DBF.

Then I would use this new file to extract the code and timestamp information
from the copied SCX.  Is this procedure safe and sound practice?

And I can't figure out how SCX calculates the TimeStamp.  It looks like the timestamp
is based on the form's creation Datetime. It also appears the TimeStamp for the Data Environment
object remains constant and the Form object is timestamped with every new save of the form. 
Any control that is changed in the current design time session gets a new timestamp.

Appreciate the help.  Dan B.
