Re: Getting file version

I want to write a script to get the versions for all the files in a

terminal on OS X and typically I've scripted using the bourne shell
before, but I am open to any ideas. Any help is appreciated.

for file in *

Many files do not have a version, so use whatever command works
for the files in question.
