UberPOV has lengthy #version declarations such as the following:

#version unofficial patch 3.71;
#patch 0.99;

How do I store the version in a variable? For instance

#declare MyVersion = version;

Does that still work properly?

It should. Let me know if it doesn't.

I just tried

     #debug concat("\n\nMike's version: ", str(version, 0, -1), "\n\n")

And it outputted

     Mike's version: 3.620000

Is that with or without the `#version unofficial patch 3.71;" ??

Because if you don't specify a `#version` statement nor `Version` INI
setting, 3.62 is the default you get.

Oops, you're right. If I set the version number first it reports 3.710000.
