Check QCAD version from CLI

Post by garciadelcastillo » Fri Jul 19, 2019 3:14 pm

Hi there!

Is there a way to check the QCAD version from the CLI? Something like:

Code: Select all

$ qcad -v

Code: Select all

$ qcad -no-gui -allow-multiple-instances -autostart -v
I am trying to add a check on my batch routines to see if the local qcad distro is updated to the correct version, or prompt the user to update if needed.
