Time and Date When Listing Program?

Chan Tran says that using PRP to list a program on an HP 41CX will print the time and date at the head of the listing. My DM41x doesn't do that. Should it? If so how do I turn on that feature?

If I buy someone a drink to congratulate them, is it a Mazel Tov cocktail?

The reference in Chan Tran message:
If you are using an HP41CX calculator, or an HP41C or CV calculator with an HP82182A Time Module installed in a calculator port, the time and date will also be printed at the head of the program listing
is coming from the HP 82242A IR printer module manual page 20, however the printer module in the DM41X is based on the HP 82143A printer which was released before the Time module and the HP 41CX, so it's normal that the PRP command from this module doesn't print the time and date at the head of the listing.

Ah! That makes perfect sense. I won't knock myself out looking for a solution, then. Thanks!

Just another feature that could have been included had SM emulated the HP 82242A IR Printer Module instead of the HP 82143A Thermal Printer. Sigh. :(

I wonder how much work it would be to create that module. I'd really like it as an alternative to the current one. Well, maybe if I ask Santa... :cry:
