Version::Next(3)      User Contributed Perl Documentation     Version::Next(3)

NAME
       Version::Next - increment module	version	numbers	simply and correctly

VERSION
       version 1.000

SYNOPSIS
	 use Version::Next qw/next_version/;

	 my $new_version = next_version( $old_version );

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides a simple, correct way to increment a Perl module
       version number.	It does	not attempt to guess what the original version
       number author intended, it simply increments in the smallest possible
       fashion.	 Decimals are incremented like an odometer.  Dotted decimals
       are incremented piecewise and presented in a standardized way.

       If more complex version manipulation is necessary, you may wish to
       consider	Perl::Version.

USAGE
       This module uses	Sub::Exporter for optional exporting.  Nothing is
       exported	by default.

   "next_version"
	 my $new_version = next_version( $old_version );

       Given a string, this function make the smallest logical increment and
       returns it.  The	input string must be a "lax" version numbers as
       defined by the version module.  The string "undef" is treated as	0 and
       incremented to 1.  Leading or trailing periods have a 0 (or "v0")
       prepended or appended as	appropriate.  For legacy reasons, given	no
       argument	or a literal "undef" (not the string "undef"), the function
       returns 0.

       Decimal versions	are incremented	like an	odometer, preserving the
       original	number of decimal places.  If an underscore is present
       (indicating an "alpha" version),	its relative position is preserved.
       Examples:

	 0.001	  ->   0.002
	 0.999	  ->   1.000
	 0.1229	  ->   0.1230
	 0.12_34  ->   0.12_35
	 0.12_99  ->   0.13_00

       Dotted-decimal versions have the	least significant element incremented
       by one.	If the result exceeds 999, the element resets to 0 and the
       next most significant element is	incremented, and so on.	 Any leading
       zero padding is removed.	 Examples:

	v1.2.3	   ->  v1.2.4
	v1.2.999   ->  v1.3.0
	v1.999.999 ->  v2.0.0

       NOTE: Due to changes in the interpretation of dotted-decimal version
       numbers with alpha elements in version 0.9913 and later,	the notion of
       the 'next' dotted-decimal alpha is ill-defined.	Version::Next no
       longer supports dotted-decimals with alpha elements and a fatal
       exception will be thrown	if one is provided to "next_version".
