NAME

OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER, OpenSSL_version, OpenSSL_version_num - get OpenSSL version number

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 #include <openssl/opensslv.h>
 #define OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER 0xnnnnnnnnnL

 #include <openssl/crypto.h>

 unsigned long OpenSSL_version_num();
 const char *OpenSSL_version(int t);



DESCRIPTION

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.

for example



 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



for example



 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.

OpenSSL_version_num() returns the version number.

OpenSSL_version() returns different strings depending on t:
OPENSSL_VERSION The text variant of the version number and the release date. For example, OpenSSL 1.0.1a 15 Oct 2015.
OPENSSL_CFLAGS The compiler flags set for the compilation process in the form compiler: ... if available or compiler: information not available otherwise.
OPENSSL_BUILT_ON The date of the build process in the form built on: ... if available or built on: date not available otherwise.
OPENSSL_PLATFORM The Configure target of the library build in the form platform: ... if available or platform: information not available otherwise.
OPENSSL_DIR The OPENSSLDIR setting of the library build in the form OPENSSLDIR: ..." if available or OPENSSLDIR: N/A" otherwise.
OPENSSL_ENGINES_DIR 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.

RETURN VALUE

The version number.
