Convert semver to strings that sort lexiographically, in the same order as isaacs/semver compares versions.
note, if you want to use ALL the 'node-semver' features, this module has missing features, and bugs. but if you use 1.3.4, ~0.1.3 or 2.3.x ranges like a reasonable person it will be fine.
Unstable: Expect patches and features, possible api changes.
converts a regular semver version into a string that sorts the same.
var p = require('padded-semver') p.pad('1.2.4-5-build') => '0001!0002!0003!0004!_build'
This now supports semver2, including the ^ "compatible" range. the compatible range is pretty silly. I wish it was what everyone thought ~ did. Instead it's another silly thing.
SemVer is too complicated.
