version - Report version information on programs
version [ -hi ] [ path… ]
Version generates a report of program version information. The report includes the official name of the program, version number, modification date, and author’s name.
If path references a file, version generates a report for that file. If path references a directory, a report is produced for all the files in that directory level. A typically useful invocation is
which generates a report for all programs found in the executable search path.
Version information is obtained in the first 255 bytes between “@(#)” markers. Therefore, entries are reported only for files that contain a version identification string within the first 255 bytes of the program or shell script.
Normally, version ignores files that do not include an indentification mark. Including the -i options instructs version to indicate files lacking version information.
The -h option disables printing of the report header.
Report output can be redirected into files by including >file at the end of the command line.
Without arguments, version displays the ProLine software version information.
