in reply to Don’t Repeat Your… version number

I can say I was not so clever as you were. I made a script to be used when I bundled my distributions together. It would read the MANIFEST for files in the lib/ directory. From those files it would do a search and replace for,

our $VERSION = '(\d\.\d{2})';
and for POD,
This documentation refers to B\<.+\> version (\d\.\d{2})

(I am sure that this not 100% correct, I am basing it off-memory).

The script allowed me to enter one value and then update the version number for all the files in my distribution. It got tedious to update 20+ .pm and .pod files all the time.

    Yeah, that’s roughly xdg’s approach above, just a little less neat because it’s not integrated with the rest of the tools.
