    find file version in DOS

    Hi,
    I need to find the file version, product version, vendor etc from executables for an asset management system.

    Can this be done in 16 bit DOS? I found a couple of classes written for 32 bit, but nothing on 16 bit.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I'm assuming this is the 16 bit DOS shell on the windows platform? If it is I believe there are API functions you can dig up that will work on 16 bit platforms...try http://msdn.microsoft.com search for GetFileAttributes you should be able to find something. Good luck.

    If you want to know if DOS has simple commands to do that...i have no clue.
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX
