 From the Parameter Expansion section of the bash manpage:

     Substring  Expansion.  Expands to up to length characters of the
     value of parameter starting at the character specified  by  off-set.

Its not stated there but I presume a blank offset defaults it to 0, 
therefore for a VERSION of 3.4.2, PYVER would be set to 3.4
