NAME
       perl-reversion -	Manipulate project version numbers

SYNOPSIS
       perl-reversion [options]	[file ...]

	Options:

	   -help	       see this	summary
	   -man		       view man	page for perl-reversion
	   -bump	       make the	smallest possible increment

	   -bump-revision      increment the specified version component
	   -bump-version
	   -bump-subversion
	   -bump-alpha

	   -set	<version>      set the project version number
	   -current <version>  specify the current version

	   -normal	       print current version in	a specific format OR
	   -numify	       force versions to be a specific format,
	   -stringify	       with -set or -bump

	   -dryrun	       just go through the motions, but	don't
			       actually	save files

DESCRIPTION
       A typical distribution of a Perl	module has embedded version numbers is
       a number	of places. Typically the version will be mentioned in the
       README file and in each module's	source.	For a module the version may
       appear twice: once in the code and once in the pod.

       This script makes it possible to	update all of these version numbers
       with a simple command.

       To update the version numbers of	specific files name them on the
       command line. Any directories will be recursively expanded.

       If used with no filename	arguments perl-reversion will attempt to
       update README and any files below lib/ in the current project.

OPTIONS
       "-bump"
	   Attempt to make the smallest	possible increment to the version. The
	   least significant part of the version string	is incremented.

	       1       =>  2
	       1.1     =>  1.2
	       1.1.1   =>  1.1.2
	       1.1.1_1 =>  1.1.1_2

       "-bump-revision"
       "-bump-version"
       "-bump-subversion"
       "-bump-alpha"
	   Increment the specified version component.  Like the	"inc_*"
	   methods of Perl::Version, incrementing a component sets all
	   components to the right of it to zero.

       "-set <version>"
	   Set the version to the specified value. Unless the "-normal"	option
	   is also specified the format	of each	individual version string will
	   be preserved.

       "-current <version>"
	   Specify the current version.	Only matching version strings will be
	   updated.

       "-normal"
       "-numify"
       "-stringify"
	   Use a specific formatting, as in "Formatting" in Perl::Version.

	   Alone, these	options	control	how the	current	(found)	version	is
	   displayed.

	   With	"-bump"	or "-set", also	update version strings to have the
	   given formatting, regardless	of the version format passed to	"-set"
	   or the current version (for "-bump").

	   If none of these options are	specified, perl-reversion will
	   preserve the	formatting of each individual version string (the same
	   as "-stringify").

       "-dryrun"
	   If set, perl-reversion will not save	files. Use this	to see what
	   gets	changed	before it actually happens.
