Sort::Versions - a perl 5 module for sorting of revision (and similar) numbers This module allows easy sorting (via comparisons) of mixed text and numeric strings, similar to the complex "version numbers" that many revision control packages and shared library systems use. For an explanation of the algorithm, it's easiest to look at these examples: 1.1 < 1.2 1.1a < 1.2 1.1 < 1.1.1 1.1 < 1.1a 1.1.a < 1.1a 1 < a a < b 1 < 2 (special handling for leading zeros) 0002 < 1 1.06 < 1.5 (a hyphen binds looser than a period) 1-1 < 1-2 1-2 < 1.2 To install, unpack the tarball and say: perl Makefile.PL make make test If the tests are successful, say as root: make install And that's it. Further documentation is available in the Versions.pm file, which may be accessed via 'perldoc Sort::Versions' after installation. * Changes in this release This is version 1.5; there are no functional changes since the last version but some tidying and extra tests. * Author and copying The files in this package are copyright Kenneth J.
