const char *OpenSSL_version(int t);
OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER is a numeric release version identifier:
MNNFFPPS: major minor fix patch status
The status nibble has one of the values 0 for development, 1 to e for betas 1 to
14, and f for release.
0x000906000 == 0.9.6 dev
0x000906023 == 0.9.6b beta 3
0x00090605f == 0.9.6e release
Versions prior to 0.9.3 have identifiers < 0x0930. Versions between 0.9.3 and
0.9.5 had a version identifier with this interpretation:
MMNNFFRBB major minor fix final beta/patch
0x000904100 == 0.9.4 release
0x000905000 == 0.9.5 dev
Version 0.9.5a had an interim interpretation that is like the current one,
except the patch level got the highest bit set, to keep continuity. The number
was therefore 0x0090581f.
returns the version number.
The macro OPENSSL_VERSION_AT_LEAST(major,minor) can be used at compile time test
if the current version is at least as new as the version provided. The
arguments major, minor and fix correspond to the version information as given
returns different strings depending on t
- The text variant of the version number and the release
date. For example, "OpenSSL 1.0.1a 15 Oct 2015".
- The compiler flags set for the compilation process in the
form "compiler: ..." if available or "compiler: information
not available" otherwise.
- The date of the build process in the form "built on:
..." if available or "built on: date not available"
- The "Configure" target of the library build in
the form "platform: ..." if available or "platform:
information not available" otherwise.
- The "OPENSSLDIR" setting of the library build in
the form "OPENSSLDIR: "..."" if available or
"OPENSSLDIR: N/A" otherwise.
- The "ENGINESDIR" setting of the library build in
the form "ENGINESDIR: "..."" if available or
"ENGINESDIR: N/A" otherwise.
For an unknown t
, the text "not available" is returned.
