clangd: Display version.
$ clangd --version
try on your machine

The command clangd --version is used to check the version of the Clangd language server.

Here's a breakdown of what it does:

  1. clangd: This is the name of the command or executable. Clangd is a language server for the C and C++ languages. It provides IDE-like features, such as code completion, diagnostic messages, and code navigation, to editors and integrated development environments (IDEs).

  2. --version: This is a command-line option that tells the clangd executable to print its version information. Instead of executing the normal functionality of the clangd language server, it will only output the version number.

When you run the command clangd --version in your terminal or command prompt, it will display the version number of the Clangd language server that is installed on your system. This information can be useful for troubleshooting or ensuring that you have the latest version of Clangd installed.
