How to find the gcc version in the C source code

The old compilers did not support the restrict keyword as
#include <stdio.h>
#include <xxxxx.h>


char * restrict cptr;

or

void * restrict vptr;

etc.

For Centos7, restrict is not available
For Fedora, and Suse and Ubuntu
restrict is available.

What is the Something and what are the ?????
In the code...

#if SOMETHING < ??????
#define restrict
#endif
