Embedded version IDs

Follow the standard method for indicating the version of your software.

The Shell command VERSION provides support for version identification, but you have to follow a standard template.

A text sequence that indicates the current version of your application should be embedded within your code. (It should also be put in your ARexx scripts and your configuration files.) The format of this text sequence is:

$VER: <name> <version>.<revision> (<d>.<m>.<y>)
<name>The name of your application
<version>Major version number
<revision>Minor revision number
<d>Day created
<m>Numeric month created
<y>Year created

If you follow this template, the user can find out what version of your software he is using with the Shell command VERSION.
