Distribution version numbers
It may be noted that version numbers can be highly confusing. CPAN considers 7.100
to be the same version. The result is that it considers 7.10
to be an older
version than 7.9
. OTOH, 7.10.0
. CPAN orders the versions as:
7.10 < 7.9 == 7.9.0 < 7.10.0 == v7.10
are consider the same version, but 7.10
isn't the same as 7.10.0
My advice: when writing Perl software, avoid dots in version numbers. Otherwise, it will confuse people.
