The Visual FoxPro version number in a standard, easily parsed format.
For versions prior to Visual FoxPro 8.0, the standard format is "MM.mm.0000.DDDD" where MM is the major release number, mm is the incremental minor revision number, 0000 is a fixed placeholder, and DDDD is the four digit product date for the day the version was created.
For Visual FoxPro 8.0, the formula for calculating the product date, DDDD, is 8000 + number of days since the beginning of 1998. For example, 8397 corresponds to February 1, 1999.
For Visual FoxPro 9.0, the formula for calculating the product date, DDDD, is number of months since January 1, 2003 concatenated with the day of the current month. For example, 2215 corresponds to October 15, 2004.
The format for Visual FoxPro 8.0 and 9.0 is "MM.mm.0000.NNNN" where MM is the major release number, mm is the incremental minor revision number, 0000 is a fixed placeholder, and NNNN is the build number.
The Visual FoxPro release version in the format Mmm where M is the major release number and mm is the incremental minor revision number. For example, VERSION(5) returns 700 in Visual FoxPro 7.0.
