: : There are several ways:
: : - a variable in a configuration file
: : - using the time as filename
: : - write a function which checks if a file exists.
: You could use the time idea with a date in front, so that it's practically impossible to EVER get a duplicate file.
: Think of a filename stored as:
: yy = 2 digit year
: m = 1-9,A-C (1-12)
: d = 1-9,A-W (1-31)
: h = 0-9,A-N (0-23)
: mm = 2 digit minute
: s = 0-9,A-V (0-30) *NOTE* This uses Second/2 ****
: xxx = your choice of extension
: This would be pretty easy to code and would only duplicate after 100 years or if the program was run 2 times in 2 seconds (both unlikely).

I like the date and time idea, but I cant see how I would make all the time variables (h, m, s, hs) fit into one single string variable which I could then call up as 'variable'.txt
variable:=(h, m, s, hs) doesnt work. Adding the date makes it even more coimplicated but then again, if you come up with an answer it will probably be obvious. I think Im starting to give up on programming
