Sah::Schema::perl::release::version - One of known released versions of perl (e.g. 5.010 or 5.10.0)


This document describes version 0.035 of Sah::Schema::perl::release::version (from Perl distribution Sah-Schemas-Perl), released on 2021-01-20.


To check data against this schema (requires Data::Sah):

 use Data::Sah qw(gen_validator);
 my $validator = gen_validator("perl::release::version*");
 say $validator->($data) ? "valid" : "INVALID!";

 # Data::Sah can also create validator that returns nice error message string
 # and/or coerced value. Data::Sah can even create validator that targets other
 # language, like JavaScript. All from the same schema. See its documentation
 # for more details.

To validate function parameters against this schema (requires Params::Sah):

 use Params::Sah qw(gen_validator);

 sub myfunc {
     my @args = @_;
     state $validator = gen_validator("perl::release::version*");

To specify schema in Rinci function metadata and use the metadata with Perinci::CmdLine to create a CLI:

 # in lib/
 package MyApp;
 our %SPEC;
 $SPEC{myfunc} = {
     v => 1.1,
     summary => 'Routine to do blah ...',
     args => {
         arg1 => {
             summary => 'The blah blah argument',
             schema => ['perl::release::version*'],
 sub myfunc {
     my %args = @_;

 # in
 package main;
 use Perinci::CmdLine::Any;

 # in command-line
 % ./ --help
 myapp - Routine to do blah ...

 % ./ --version

 % ./ --arg1 ...


Use this schema if you want to accept one of the known released versions of perl.

The list of releases of perl is retrieved from the installed core module Module::CoreList during runtime as well as the one used during build. One of both those Module::CoreList instances might not be the latest, so this list might not be up-to-date. To ensure that the list is complete, you will need to keep your copy of Module::CoreList up-to-date.

The list of version numbers include numified version (which, unfortunately, collapses trailing zeros, e.g. 5.010000 into 5.010) as well as the x.y.z version (e.g. 5.10.0).
