Hmm, good question.  All though, the OP did state he was using it to write shell scripts, others might not know.

I honestly don't know.

This maybe doesn't apply to the OP, but I've seen MacOSX users who don't even
know what a "terminal" is, let alone how to open one (being a Linux user
myself, I also had some trouble finding a way to open a terminal when I first
sat in front of a Mac machine on one occasion).

So, is there a way to find out the emacs version from within a running emacs
instance itself?

Best, :-)
