This is a commandline tool to *update version numbers* across source code files.

It understands multiple syntax contexts to constrain write operations. And the command arguments can be mixed naturally.


Just running the script displays a simple help (same as atop the code).

But there is also a manpage version(1).


It's useful for preparing manual packaging processes, keeping version numbers in sync from source code to documentation and build scripts.

I've been using a dozen variants of this on multiple projects, but each patched to a specific language or too generic. This is a consolidation.

Surely there must be other tools like that, but they're obviously not easy to google.
