in reply to Modules and version numbers.

Well the best way of solving this problem is to indicate to your boss his/her requirement is nonsense and that the version number itself doesn't indicate anything.

But if that doesn't work, fix stupid requirements with stupid solutions. Write a dummy module like:

package XML::Parser::PerlSAX::toadi; use XML::Parser::PerlSAX; use vars '$Version'; # Leave next 2 lines out if XML::Parser::PerlSAX doesn't # use Exporter. use Exporter; @ISA = 'Exporter'; $VERSION = 1.1;
Alternatively, assuming XML::Parser::PerlSAX is free software, copy it, and change the version number in your copy.
