How to find version of a file or program

I read in another post for someone having a similar problem as me that the person's rsync's weren't the same version. How do you check the version of a file or program in Linux?

In the GUI, mostly
help-> about
For CLI programs
rsync --version
program -help will give the options
Or you can use the packetmanager.

the --version worked. then i realized this wouldn't have any effect since my troubled rsync is between arrays in the same server :-(
