in reply to Version Sorting

What about v-strings, or the other equivalent forms of version number ?

Something similar to the version module will be part of Perl 5.10.0 . In the example bellow, note that $a could also have been '1.2.3' or other forms of version number (see perldoc).

use version; # Version comparison # '1.2.3', 'v1.2.3', 1.2.3 my $a = qv( 'v1.2.3' ); my $b = qv( '1.2.29' ); # Compare print +($a>$b) ? $a : $b;
