In Perl, version numbers are really just strings. The string 1.10 would sort before 1.9 even though the version 1.10 comes after 1.9. You're kinda stuck, though, since you can't change the past.

The trick is to put in more decimal places, so version 1.9 is really 1.09 or 1.009, just like Perl 5.10 is really 5.010.

[erix]: sorry, my attention is a rar commodity. I will not squander it on such pro-russia sites :)
[erix]: *rare commodity
[shmem]: erix: you are utterly mistaken in marking that site as "pro-russian".
[erix]: how do you mean? the bear, explanations of Putin's "election", the fearsome new russian weaponry. I came across them immediately. Just coincidence?
[shmem]: No, not coincidence - prejudice and bias
[shmem]: your scanner is pre-loaded ;-)
