Is there any way to read the latex and/or dvipdfmx version numbers at
compile time and pass the string(s) to the metadata of the final pdf

For example, if I use the <hyperref> package with this command in the preamble
,can string1 and string2 somehow be written to at compile time to
contain the version number(s)?

Many many thanks in advance,
