SCons / SconsVersion

How to retrieve the version of SCons from your script ?

Ah! We don't really have a defined, public interface for this. We should have. In the meantime, you can use:

import SCons
print SCons.__version__

(Where, of course, you can do whatever you like with the SCons.__version__ string, not just print it.)

If you are looking to ensure a certain version of SCons, use: EnsureSConsVersion()

For example, using EnsureSConsVersion(0, 96, 93) will exit SCons with an appropriate error message if the version of SCons is not at least 0.96.93
