Question Finding file version info


Is there a standard command for retrieving the version of any given file (assuming the file has a version)?

Thanks in advance

Some source control apps embed a version header in source code. Some programmers do as well. Some files have the compile-time embedded as a reference.

If you think version info exists, start with ident <filename> then maybe try what <filename>
