Q: How do I tell the version of a Verific software release?
respectively return the release string (e.g. "Sep16_SW_Release") and the release date (e.g. "Thu Sep 29 17:57:37 2016").
Also, the tclmain application with -v option will output release data:
[hoa@awing6 tclmain]$ ./tclmain-linux-O -v -- (c) Copyright 1999 - 2016 Verific Design Automation Inc. All rights reserved -- This code is dated being part of the Verific Sep16_SW_Release release : Thu Sep 29 17:57:37 2016 Hello, init.tcl has been executed % exit [hoa@awing6 tclmain]$
