Expand description

The library provide a way for reading version from the binaries files.


You must have libarchive properly installed on your system in order to use this. If building on *nix systems, pkg-config is used to locate the libarchive; on Windows vcpkg will be used to locating the libarchive.

The minimum supported Rust version is 1.59.


The following know patterns are supported allowing the version to be detected without the need for any user specification:

  • U-Boot
  • LinuxKernel

Other formats are supported through the version_with_pattern function, which will look for a given regular expression on the given binary.


Define the binary kind to use for matching.


Get the version for a specific binary.
Get the version for a specific pattern.
