This SRFI defines a standard command-line flag to get version information from a Scheme implementation. The output is Line-oriented S-expressions which are easy to parse from Scheme, C, and shell scripts and can co-exist with non-S-expression output. A standard vocabulary is defined; extensions are easy to make.
