Hi Nils, 
Thank you for your prompt reply and your hints !
First & positive: I got date / time added as intended !! ;-)

Second and not so good:
Looks like I am working with two left hands with placing the script as
recommended/wanted ! ;-|

a1) I assume $HOME/bin means /home/bin !?
a2) I do not have such a location ! ;-(

b1) Created my script (UUIDcomp) in /usr/local/bin
b2) After chmod +w /usr/local/bin/UUIDcomp I am getting:

sna at WS222:~$ sh UUIDcomp
sh: Can't open UUIDcomp

sna at WS222:~$ UUIDcomp
bash: /usr/local/bin/UUIDcomp: Permission denied
sna at WS222:~$ 

What and where could have gone wrong ...
... or where did I make my mistake/s ??

Any hints / suggestions ?

TIA and cheers, svobi
