DESCRIPTION

RevUp manages version strings following the Amiga standard for including in
own programs, e.g.  '$VER: YourTool 2.4 (11.9.95)'.

It's a must for every serious C, Oberon or Assembler programmer, so have a
look at it!  Your makefiles together with RevUp will do all the work for
you.

possible.
