Allegro CL version 8.2
Unrevised from 8.1 to 8.2.
8.1 version


Arguments: &optional type main-only

This function returns a value that represents the version of Allegro CL RPC in the current Allegro CL image. The type argument is a keyword that determines the type and format of the returned value. If the main-only argument is non-nil, the value returned describes only the main version number of the module. It should be possible for two Allegro CL images with different versions to communicate as long as the main version number in both is the same.

The following table show what is returned for various values of type and main-only. Both arguments default to nil.

Value of  type Value returned when  main-only is nil Value returned when  main-only is non-nil
:string "3.2.2" "3"
:pretty "ACL RPC Version 3.2.2" "ACL RPC Version 3"
:num 30202 3
[omitted or nil or any other value] (3 2 2) 3
