word),... none of which rings any bells with me.
The "official" way to display the version number and patch level of any Vim
executable is (at the user's choice) any one of the following:
vim --version |more
Version number is displayed on the first line of output
and "Included patches" (if any) on second line.
Note: In Win32, "gvim --version" sends its output to a message
popup, apparently after detaching Vim from the shell's stdout
(if any) but without starting the GUI.
launch [g]vim without any editfile. The splash screen comes up, unless
the vimrc or some command-line switch sets the I flag in the
Version and patchlevel are on the second non-blank line.
The splash screen comes up. Version & pl on 2nd nonblank line.
The version listing comes up. Version on 1st line,
included patches (if any) on 2nd.

#define VIM_VERSION_BUILD 262
#define VIM_VERSION_BUILD_BCD 0x106
#define VIM_VERSION_BUILD_STR "262"
Obviously we need a little script to keep this up to date...
