how to tell the version number of dash?

I have a dash shell installed as /bin/dash. I checked the manual of dash, which is the same as the POSIX shell manual, and there is nothing there to tell the version of the shell.

dash –version

does not work.

How to tell the version number of dash I have??

Added: some people are pointing me to Ubuntu commands, well, no I am not running Ubuntu, I am running Centos.



On systems like Centos that use rpm:

rpm -q dash
