    File version maintenance utility
    *
    A team of software developers has been asked to develop a file version maintenance utility . The utility should maintain all the*
    version of a file. When a user modifies a file, the current version of the file should be stored separately before the update
    operation is executed. The application should also keep a records of:
    • The date and time of the modification.
    • The name of the user who modified the file.
    *
    DESIGN SPECIFICATION*
    The File Version Maintenance Utility should be designed to meet the following specification
    • It should be a console based application for a standalone machine.
    • It should provide menu options to perform various activities.
    • For every file maintained by the utility, a history folder should be maintained. The history folder should contain the previous*
    versions of the file.
    • A user needs to provide a user name and password to log on to the utility.
    • Users of two types, normal users and administrators.
    • After successful logon, a normal user can perform the following tasks.
    1. Add, modify, delete, and view files
    2. View previous versions of a file
    • A user with administrative rights should be able to perform the following task after logging on:
    1. Add, modify, delete, and view files
    2. View previous versions of a file
    3. Create new user accounts
    • When a user edits a file, the current version of the file should be copied to the history folder. After that, the modifications in the*
    file should be saved.
    • The different versions of a file need to be stored with different names in history folder. The name of a version can be chosen in*
    the< File Name>_<w Version Number> format. For example, the first two versions of the file named EmployeeDetails.txt can be*
    Stored in the History folder as EmployeeDetails_1.txt and EmployeeDetails_2.txt.
    • A user can list the version history of a file. After listing the various versions of the file, the user can view any version of the file by
    providing the version number.
    • A user can also replace the current version of the file with any of its previous versions
    • When a file is deleted, its complete version history should be deleted.
