classVersion: Retrieve information about versioned classes

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

These generic functions return version information for classes derived from Versioned-class, or VersionsNull-class for unversioned objects. The version information is an object of Versions-class.

By default, classVersion has the following behaviors:

classVersion(Versioned-instance)

Returns a Versions-class object obtained from the object.

classVersion{"class"}

Consults the definition of class and return the current version information, if available.

classVersion(ANY)

Return a VersionsNull-class object to indicate no version information available.

By default, the classVersion<- method has the following behavior:

classVersion(Versioned-instance)["id"] <- value

Assign (update or add) value to Versions-instance. value is coerced to a valid version description. see Versions-class for additional access methods.
