Find out What Version of casacore is Used in a CASA Release

To be really sure, I think you need to compile and run this short program:

// getvers.cxx
#define _GLIBCXX_USE_CXX11_ABI 0
#include <iostream>
#include <string>

namespace casa {
  const std::string getVersion();
  const std::string getVersionCASA();

int main(int argc, char **argv)
  std::cout << casa::getVersion() << std::endl;
  std::cout << casa::getVersionCASA() << std::endl;
  return 0;

Compile with:

g++ -o getvers getvers.cxx -lcasa_casa -L$CASALIBDIR -Wl,-rpath,$CASALIBDIR

May need to symlink to just in $CASALIBDIR.

For CASA 4.7.1, I get 2.1.0 as the value of getVersionCASA(), which is a reasonable casacore version number.
