In my previous post I explained how to hack the DWG file format to get the DWG file version. As promised, the second part of the post provides the code. Anyway, I changed my mind. Just to make the thing more interesting I decided to publish an F# version of the code.
F# is the last entry into the official Microsoft Languages family. It's a functional language, targeted at the .NET framework. If you are new to the language there are several language specific features that make the code succinct and very elegant (to me at least). An example for all is the pattern matching.
