           Summary: All tools need a --version command-line switch
           Product: tools
           Version: trunk
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: analyze
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: brukman+bugs at uiuc.edu

As LLVM progresses and accumulates more versions behind it, I think it is
necessary to allow users to inquire of the version number of the current tools.

An implementation could be just a version.h file which defines the version and
is #included by all tools.  It would be preferrable for releases to have actual
numbers, whereas checking out from CVS gets a version of "cvs", but this adds
extra work at every release... 

Comments welcome.
