    C++ and Program Version Naming

    Hello.

    I developed a couple of simple program the last two week. I have no prior programming experience in terms of developing an original as well as productive application.

    I would like to know the conventional method of naming program versions.

    For example, at what point should the programmer call a program "version 1.0"

    I have seen different names programmers declared their programs. Some declare "build," others declare "1.02." Lastly, there is the Microsoft way as in "5.0.8389."

    What is the conventional way of calling a program version?

    Thanks,
    Kuphryn

    What ever you feel. Build, the way I understand it, is how many times you compile it.....or something similar to that. Version is when you have a good working program, that is "stable" and actualy does what it is "suposed to do". If an error is found, a hole, or any other problem with the "version" you will have to patch, or re-build the program. Causing another compile(build) and an updated version (i.e 1.1). This is the way that I understand it. If anyone else has the correct way, or wants to tell me the correct way that this is, or if I nailed it on the head, just tell me.

    Thanks.

    I began implementing "full.minor.builds" format.
