That Depends. If you're using a Windows version of powerbasic,
it will be relatively easy. Version information is stored as part of
the resource file information attached to the EXE or DLL file.
Windows has API calls to pull in this information, although I
don't recall the names of the relevant functions offhand. Sorry,
it's been a while. Try browsing through MSDN or any decent
Windows API book.

The version information is stored in the EXE or DLL as text
data in Unicode form, which (for most purposes) can be
construed as ASCII codes interleaved with CHR$(0) nulls.
It shouldn't be too difficult to read the data directly from the
file, if that appears to be the most effective technique.
