SemVer version 0.7.0

This module subclasses version to create semantic versions, as defined by the Semantic Versioning 1.0.0 Specification The two salient points of the specification, for the purposes of version formatting, are:

  1. A normal version number MUST take the form X.Y.Z where X, Y, and Z are integers. X is the major version, Y is the minor version, and Z is the patch version. Each element MUST increase numerically by increments of one. For instance: 1.9.0 < 1.10.0 < 1.11.0.

  2. A pre-release version number MAY be denoted by appending an arbitrary string immediately following the patch version and a dash. The string MUST be comprised of only alphanumerics plus dash C<[0-9A-Za-z-]>. Pre-release versions satisfy but have a lower precedence than the associated normal version. Precedence SHOULD be determined by lexicographic ASCII sort order. For instance: 1.0.0-alpha1 < 1.0.0-beta1 < 1.0.0-beta2 < 1.0.0-rc1 < 1.0.0.


To install this module, type the following:

perl Build.PL
./Build test
./Build install


SemVer requires version.
