       comedi_get_version_code - Comedi version code


       #include <comedilib.h>

       int comedi_get_version_code (comedi_t * device);


       Returns  the  Comedi kernel module version code.  A valid Comedi device
       referenced by the parameter device is necessary to communicate with the
       kernel module.  On error, -1 is returned.

       The  version code is encoded as a bitfield of three 8-bit numbers.  For
       example, 0x00073d is the version code for version 0.7.61.

       This function is of limited usefulness.  A typical  mis-application  of
       this  function  is  to  use  it  to  determine  if a certain feature is
       supported.  If the application needs to know  of  the  existence  of  a
       particular  feature,  an  existence test function should be written and
       put in the Comedilib source.
