This plugin inserts and updates a time stamp automatically.

Users can specify a format and position of the time stamp by options.
By default, autodate.vim searches a keyword "Last Change:."
in the first 50 lines of the buffer, and inserts a time stamp.  Example:
    Last Change: 24-Jun-2003.

Setting Example:
    :let b:autodate_keyword_pre = '<!--DATE-->'
    :let b:autodate_keyword_post = '<!--DATE-->'
    :let b:autodate_format = '%Y/%m/%d'
