Kernel::VERSION - Ruby

There used to be a constant of this name, which I was using in programs to figure out which version of Ruby the user had. It seems to be gone in Ruby version 1.8.1. What should I use instead? Regards, Bret...

    Looks like it's just not Kernel::VERSION.

    Thanks. RUBY_VERSION looks good and works as early
    as ruby 1.6.4 (the earliest version that builds on my
    machine).
