[][src]Function openssl::version::number

pub fn number() -> i64

OPENSSL_VERSION_NUMBER is a numeric release version identifier:

MNNFFPPS: major minor fix patch status

The status nibble has one of the values 0 for development, 1 to e for betas 1 to 14, and f for release.

for example

0x000906000 == 0.9.6 dev 0x000906023 == 0.9.6b beta 3 0x00090605f == 0.9.6e release

Versions prior to 0.9.3 have identifiers < 0x0930. Versions between 0.9.3 and 0.9.5 had a version identifier with this interpretation:

MMNNFFRBB major minor fix final beta/patch

for example

0x000904100 == 0.9.4 release 0x000905000 == 0.9.5 dev

Version 0.9.5a had an interim interpretation that is like the current one, except the patch level got the highest bit set, to keep continuity. The number was therefore 0x0090581f

The return value of this function can be compared to the macro to make sure that the correct version of the library has been loaded, especially when using DLLs on Windows systems.
