How to determine the interpreter version, legacy

Postby hodger » Tue Apr 11, 2017 6:40 pm

Is there a way to determine which version of SC was used to build a particular standalone? I have some older standalone and don't have any recollection or records as to which SC version I used to author them.

Thanks,
Greg

Well, one easy method that should work across all versions would be to use AppleScript:

Code: Select all
tell application "My Standalone"
   activate
   do script "put the version"
end tell

Hi Mark,

I had "version" in my head but that function doesn't show up when searching for "version" in the help project.

That's exactly what I needed.

Thanks,
Greg

IIRC there's an already-fixed bug in b26 that causes it not to display the last line in a list field if it doesn't end in return (and version would've been the last entry...).

Well, that explains why I've been seeing inconsistent results in short lists (long list it's easier to miss a single entry). Thanks.
