DESCRIPTION
       Tcl_GetVersion should be used to query the version number of the Tcl library  at  runtime.
       This  is  useful when using a dynamically loaded Tcl library or when writing a stubs-aware
       extension.  For instance, if you write an extension that is linked against the  Tcl  stubs
       library,  it  could  be	loaded	into a program linked to an older version of Tcl than you
       expected.  Use Tcl_GetVersion to verify that fact, and possibly to change the behavior  of
       your extension.

       Tcl_GetVersion  accepts	NULL  for  any	of the arguments. For instance if you do not care
       about the patchLevel of the library, pass a NULL for the patchLevel argument.

KEYWORDS
       version, patchlevel, major, minor, alpha, beta, release
