3.12 Program Version

The version number of this SEISAN distribution is given on the front page of this manual. All individual programs have a version number and a date of the last changes. This will help the users and developers to find out which version is in use and from which date. This is particular useful when bugs are reported. In case major bugs have been fixed, the new versions (same version number, different date) of the individual program will be available on the anonymous ftp site and a message will be sent to the seisan mailing list.

In all programs you can obtain the version number by starting a program with `$-$version' as argument. For example collect $-$version will show you the version and date of your COLLECT program.
