# This script find the version of libstdc++ and prints it as single number
# with 8 bits per element. For example, GLIBCXX_3.4.10 becomes
# 3 << 16 | 4 << 8 | 10 = 197642. This format is easy to use
# in the C preprocessor.

# We find out both the host and target versions. Since the output
# will be used from shell, we just print the two assignments and evaluate
# them from shell.
