    There's a tricks that works with almost all files generated by a cad.

    1) open a file with notepad (better wordpad, due carriage retur code identification)

    2) read the header, wich is located at the very beginnin of the file

    example with a drw generated with wildfire:

    #UGC:2 DRAWING 1271 560 5 1 1 15 2400 2003170 00000628 \
    #- VERS 0 0 \
    #- HOST \
    #- LINK \
    #- DBID \
    #- REVS 0, \
    #- RELL 0, \
    #- UOBJ_ID 1383331456 754793595 -382046421 \
    #- MACH _Windows NT_6.1_7601

    i.e. 2400 2003170 are build number and datacode number.

    2400 identified wildfire version I
    2003170 identified wildfire version I realise

    All cads generate file with this kind of header
