in thread Can't use three part version number for CPAN modules

our $VERSION = "0.0.3";

If you're following TheDamian's advice you'll want to use the version module instead of a plain string. Something like:

use version; our $VERSION = qv( '0.0.0' );

and adding version to your modules prerequisites. NOTE: it's important to keep the use version on the same line since many modules grep out the line with $VERSION and eval it to get the version number out.
