smfi_version Function


The smfi_version function provides the libmilter (runtime) version information.


#include <libmilter/mfapi.h>
int smfi_version(
	unsigned int *pmajor,
	unsigned int *pminor,
	unsigned int *ppl


The smfi_version callback function might be called at any time.

The compile-time version of the libmilter library is available in the SMFI_VERSION macro. To extract the major and minor version as well as the current patch level from this macro, the SM_LM_VRS_MAJOR(v), SM_LM_VRS_MINOR(v), and SM_LM_VRS_PLVL(v) macros might be used. A milter parameter can check the SMFI_VERSION macro to determine which functions to use (at compile time via C preprocessor statements). Using this macro and the smfi_version function, a milter parameter can determine at run time whether it has been (dynamically) linked against the expected libmilter version. Such a function must compare the major and minor version only, not the patch level, that is, the libmilter library will be compatible despite different patch levels.

Return values

The smfi_version function returns the MI_SUCCESS value.
