GETVERS(1) Commands and Applications GETVERS(1)
getvers - list information stored in rVersion and rComment resources
getvers [-b] [-c] [-f] [-q] file ...
getvers print the version information (product name, version, descrip-
tion, country) stored in the rVersion resource of the specified files
and optionally print the contents of the rComment resource. If there is
no version information, or if there is an error accessing the file,
getvers prints a message and continues processing any remaining files.
To add rVersion resource information to a file, you can use the compan-
ion shell utility setvers(1), or use the rez resource compiler.
getvers returns 1 to its parent program if an error is encountered pro-
cessing any of the files. Otherwise it returns 0.
getvers recognizes these options:
-b print a brief one-line listing for each file, showing only the
product name and version.
-c print rComment resource number 1 (the one displayed by Finder in
file information windows).
-f print the name of a file before printing its information.
-q do not print error or warning information.
