CPAN::Version(3)       Perl Programmers	Reference Guide	      CPAN::Version(3)

NAME
       CPAN::Version - utility functions to compare CPAN versions

SYNOPSIS
	 use CPAN::Version;

	 CPAN::Version->vgt("1.1","1.1.1");    # 1 bc. 1.1 > 1.001001

	 CPAN::Version->vlt("1.1","1.1");      # 0 bc. 1.1 not < 1.1

	 CPAN::Version->vcmp("1.1","1.1.1");   # 1 bc. first is	larger

	 CPAN::Version->vcmp("1.1.1","1.1");   # -1 bc.	first is smaller

	 CPAN::Version->readable(v1.2.3);      # "v1.2.3"

	 CPAN::Version->vstring("v1.2.3");     # v1.2.3

	 CPAN::Version->float2vv(1.002003);    # "v1.2.3"

DESCRIPTION
       This module mediates between some version that perl sees	in a package
       and the version that is published by the	CPAN indexer.

       It's only written as a helper module for	both CPAN.pm and CPANPLUS.pm.

       As it stands it predates	version.pm but has the same goal: make version
       strings visible and comparable.
