    EXTRAVERSION - Find the extra version string (non-Amiga version).

    EXTRAVERSION [<library|script|file>] [FULL|VSTRING|HELP]


    EXTRAVERSION finds the extra version number of a library,	command,
    script or simply any file where the extra version string has been has been
    correctly set.

    EXTRAVERSION with no <library|script|file> argument prints the name and
    extra version string.

    FULL  - Outputs name, extraversion, date and the comment in the extra
    version string (in the same line). 

    VSTRING - Outputs the complete extra version string (including $EXTVER:).

    VERSION - <Not yet implemented.>

    To add an extra version string to your file, make sure that the file
    contains a string of characters that represent the extra version string.

    "\0$EXTVER: Program_Name ExtraVersionString (dd.mm.yyyy) Some comment.\0" 

	ProgramName    	    - Name of your program
	ExtraVersionString  - Any non-Amiga version string (tip: use _ for spaces)
	dd	                - Day of month (1-31)
	mm	                - Month of year (1-12)
	yyyy	            - Year using four digits
	comment	            - Optional comment, just for readability.
