    I wrote this script to check if the current version of Cinema 4D is greater or equal to R16.
    can I improve this script or there is a better way of doing this?

    import c4d  
    def main() :  
      if int(str(c4d.GetC4DVersion())[:2]) >= 16 :  
          print "Greater than or equal to R16"  
      else :  
          print "Older than R16"  
    if __name__=='__main__':

    The number you get with GetC4DVersion() is the Cinema 4D version number multiplied by 1000.
    So your check can be optimized like this:

    if c4d.GetC4DVersion() >= 16000:
      # ...

    Thank you, I had not thought about that.
