Obtaining utility version information

Use the -V and -version options of many Informix® command-line utilities to obtain version, primarily for debugging.

The -V option displays the software version number and the serial number.

The -version option extends the -V option to display additional information about the build operation system, build number, and build date.

            '- -version----------------'   

The -V and -version options cannot be used with any other utility options. For example, the onstat -version command might display the following output.

onstat -version
