Pref::kernel

Version number of the presently used kernel

Use only in the MuPAD Notebook Interface.

This functionality does not run in MATLAB.

Syntax

Pref::kernel()
Pref::kernel(<BitsInLong>)
Pref::kernel(<BuildNr>)

Description

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.

Examples

Example 1

Here the version numbers of kernel and library differ:

Pref::kernel() = version()

Example 2

A 32-bit architecture:

Pref::kernel(BitsInLong)

Example 3

At the time of this writing, kernels build number was 42703:

Pref::kernel(BuildNr)

Options

BitsInLong

Pref::kernel(BitsInLong) returns the number of bits of a long integer number. On a 64-bit architecture it returns 64, otherwise 32.

BuildNr

The kernel has an additional build number which enables the developers to identify the exact sources for this kernel.

Return Values

Version number: a list of three nonnegative integers or a number.
