[AmigaOS 3.1 Command Reference\Version]
Format: VERSION [<library|device|file>][<version #>] [<revision #>]
Template: NAME, VERSION/N, REVISION/N, UNIT/N, FILE/S, INTERNAL/S,
Purpose: To find software version and revision numbers.
VERSION finds the version and revision number of a library, device, command,
or Workbench disk. VERSION can also test for a specific version/revision and
set the condition flags if the version/revision is greater. This is useful
VERSION with no <library|device|file> argument prints the Kickstart version
number and the Workbench version number and sets the environment variables.
If a name is specified, version attempts to open the library, device, drive,
or file and read the version information. You can get the version of the
filesystem by specifying a drive name, such as DF0: or DH0:.
When a <version #> (and possibly a <revision #>) is specified, VERSION sets
the condition flag to 0 if the version (and revision) number of the
Kickstart, library, or device driver is greater than or equal to the
specifed values. Otherwise, the flag is set to 5 (WARN). (lf a revision
number is not specified, no comparison on the revision number is performed.)
The <unit #> option allows you to specify a unit number other than 0. This
may be necessary for accessing multi-unit devices.
The FILE option forces VERSION to inspect the object as a file, even if it
is a library or device. The INTERNAL and RES options let you get the version
of the Internal and Resident commands, respectively. Built-in Shell commands
will have the same version string as the Shell itself. INTERNAL can also be
used to find the version of a RAM module (library or drive) without opening
the device or library. The FULL option prints out the complete version
string, including the date.
