Identifying software products
The product name, level number, and product identification fields are described.
The product name and level number identify a software product. The format for a software product level in AIX® is as follows:
Each field in the software product identification is defined as follows:
- The versionnumber field consists of 1 to 2 digits that identify the version number.
- The releasenumber field consists of 1 to 2 digits that identify the release number.
- The modificationlevel field consists of 1 to 4 digits that identify the modification level.
- The fixlevel field consists of 1 to 4 digits that identify the fix level.
For example, 07.01.0000.0000 is a software product level number, and 07.01.0000.0032 is a software product update level. It is not necessary to include the leading zeroes in the version, release, modification level, and fix level fields of the level. Level 07.01.0000.0000 can also be written as 220.127.116.11.
