Yet another version commandline tool.

Shell/CLI arguments:

 FILE/A         : filename to get version (mandatory)
 N=NAME/S       : prints name of version string
 V=VER=VERSION/S: prints version.revision of version string
 D=DATE/S       : prints date of version string
 RES=RESIDENT/S : try to find resident version of FILE
 EXTVER/S       : try to find $EXTVER: version string
 NC=NOCOMMENT/S : don't print comment string (if available)
NOTE1: without any switch it prints full version string.
NOTE2: using 'N D' combination not supported.
NOTE3: I added a couple of workarounds for some programs/libs/... that
have incorrect '$VER: name ver.rev (date) [misc]' string. In case you
find a faulty one contact me so I can try to workaround (if it's worth).
