Tag Release no. to Executables


I want to give and Release and Version no. in my .so and .exe. I am using Solaris 8

Can i do this by having the value in a variable and then tagging it via a makefile.
Or any other way.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Use what strings at the top of each module file:
static char *str_rev_code=         
"@(#)ACOM $Header:/main/str_rev.c v1.21 02 Apr 2003 11:55:31 $";

The what or ident command sees the what string and displays the result:
$> what bigfile
    $Revision: 92453-07 linker linker crt0.o B.11.33 020617 $
    $Header:/main/bilp.c     1.21   02 Apr 2003 11:55:18   psmith  $

Create scripts to check in code to cvs or whatever - have the script add whatever
information you need in a static variable, like the one above.

Good option,

But somehow i dont want to put it in code.
Is there any option of adding while compiling or linking.

We have the code librarian (Serena ChangeMan) add it dynamically whenever code is checked in. Adding it at compile time doesn't make sense, IMO.

Why not?

If your Releases change, then you will everytime change your code librarian and if you are late by a day then ...

If i tag it somehow during compiling then it will be more feasible, as we don't have a code librarian.
