For the information about NetHack versions, see Game history

The #version extended command displays information about your version of NetHack. For a short one-line version information, you can press v.

Along with the version number, useful information about the set compile-time options and available windowing systems are shown. Certain things can be compiled in or out of the game; #version will show a list of all options compiled in. Within the options compiled in is a range of versions that save and bones files from the current version will be compatible with.

Supported windowing systems are shown. #version, for example, informs if the tty and GUI systems are available.


Depending on your settings, using the version command might display something like the following:
