Hello Chris,

I have a doubt regarding the structure of the files. 
The shellscript "updateversion" that we write, is it supposed to be present inside the project directory 
along with other *.c, *.h files or is it supposed to be in the parent directory of the project directory.

For now, I have kept my shellscript inside the project folder along with the *.c and *.h files and am able 
to update the version numbers, date and time of the update without accepting any command-line argument. 

Please give some clarity on the hierarchy of the files. So that I will modify my code accordingly to 
reflect those changes.
