Version number of the presently used kernel
This functionality does not run in MATLAB.
Pref::kernel() Pref::kernel(<BitsInLong>) Pref::kernel(<BuildNr>)
The version numbers of the kernel and the library may differ. Pref::kernel refers to the kernel, whereas the call version() returns the version number of the installed MuPAD® library.
Here the version numbers of kernel and library differ:
Pref::kernel() = version()
A 32-bit architecture:
At the time of this writing, kernels build number was 42703:
Pref::kernel(BitsInLong) returns the number of bits of a long integer number. On a 64-bit architecture it returns 64, otherwise 32.
The kernel has an additional build number which enables the developers to identify the exact sources for this kernel.
