NAME

       al_get_allegro_version - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro.h>

              uint32_t al_get_allegro_version(void)

DESCRIPTION

       Returns  the  (compiled)  version  of the Allegro library, packed into a single integer as
       groups of 8 bits in the form (major << 24) | (minor << 16) | (revision << 8) | release.

       You can use code like this to extract them:

              uint32_t version = al_get_allegro_version();
              int major = version >> 24;
              int minor = (version >> 16) & 255;
              int revision = (version >> 8) & 255;
              int release = version & 255;

       The release number is 0 for an unofficial  version  and  1  or  greater  for  an  official
       release.   For  example  “5.0.2[1]”  would  be  the  (first)  official 5.0.2 release while
       “5.0.2[0]” would be a compile of a version from the “5.0.2”  branch  before  the  official
       release.
