If you don't need to get this info programatically, I believe the
Package Info part of StandAlone FreezeUtil gives this information. You
select the package you want the info in (after installing FreezeUtil),
choose "Package Info" from the Envelope menu. It should be the first
item on the list. If you just need this info to help you program, this
should work.
