SETVERS(1)                 Commands and Applications                SETVERS(1)




NAME

       setvers  -  store  version number and strings in rVersion format in the
       specified executable file.


SYNOPSIS

       setvers file 'string1~string2' [country] vmajrev.minrev.bugrev


DESCRIPTION

       setvers is a program which adds an rVersion resource to  the  specified
       file.   The rVersion format allows for two strings of up to 255 charac-
       ters, although it is suggested that for this use you  keep  each  field
       shorter  than  80 characters.  string1 is seperated from string2 by a ^
       character, and the both strings should be enclosed  in  single  quotes.
       string1  is  required to be the name of the program.  Any '_' character
       in string2 will be interpreted as a carriage return.  When  using  GNO,
       make sure to quote the single quotes with backslashes.

       The  optional  field  country (no spaces allowed) allows you to set the
       country field of the rVersion resource.  The last parameter is the cur-
       rent revision number of the program in the format majrev.minrev.bugrev,
       where majrev is a single or double digit number from 00 to 99, and min-
       rev and bugrev are single digit numbers from zero to nine.

       To print the version information stored by setvers you can use the com-
       panion shell utilities getvers or gv.
