DACS_VERSION(8)             DACS Web Services Manual             DACS_VERSION(8)



NAME
       dacs_version - display DACS version information

SYNOPSIS
       dacs_version [dacsoptions[1]]

DESCRIPTION
       This program is part of the DACS suite.

       The dacs_version web service displays version information about DACS and
       other third-party packages that have been compiled into DACS.

       The FORMAT argument (see dacs.services(8)[2]) determines the type of
       output, with the default being HTML, using the style sheet
       dacs_version.css[3]. If XML output is selected, a document conforming to
       dacs_version.dtd[4] is returned.  JSON (RFC 7159[5]) is also supported.

           Security
           Because installation and build details that are displayed could be
           taken advantage of by an attacker, the default DACS ACL restricts use
           of this web service to a DACS administrator.

           Note
           This program is also available as a DACS utility, dacsversion(1)[6].
           Because dacs_admin(8)[7] provides the same functionality and more,
           dacs_version may be removed in a future release.

OPTIONS
   Web Service Arguments
       The standard CGI arguments[8] are understood.

DIAGNOSTICS
       The program exits 0 if everything was fine, 1 if an error occurred.
