=head1 NAME

Alien::Build::Version::Basic - Very basic version object for Alien::Build

=head1 VERSION

version 2.74


OO interface:

 use Alien::Build::Version::Basic;
 my $version = Alien::Build::Version::Basic->new('1.2.3');
 if($version > '1.2.2')  # true

Function interface:

 use Alien::Build::Version::Basic qw( version );
 if(version('1.2.3') > version('1.2.2')) # true
 my @sorted = sort map { version($_) } qw( 2.1 1.2.3 1.2.2 );
 # will come out in the order 1.2.2, 1.2.3, 2.1


This module provides a very basic class for comparing versions.
This is already a crowded space on CPAN.  Parts of L<Alien::Build>
already use L<Sort::Versions>, which is fine for sorting versions.
Sometimes you need to compare to see if versions match exact I<values>,
and the best candidates (such as L<Sort::Versions> on CPAN compare
C<> and C<1.2.3> as being different.  This class compares
those two as the same.

This class is also quite limited, in that it only works with version
schemes using a doted version numbers or real numbers with a fixed
number of digits.  Versions with: dashes, letters, hex digits, or
anything else are not supported.

This class overloads both C<E<lt>=E<gt>> and C<cmp> to compare the version in
the way that you would expect for version numbers.  This way you can
compare versions like numbers, or sort them using sort.

 if(version($v1) > version($v2))
 my @sorted = sort map { version($_) } @unsorted;

it also overloads C<""> to stringify as whatever string value you
passed to the constructor.


=head2 new

 my $version = Alien::Build::Version::Basic->new($value);

This is the long form of the constructor, if you don't want to import
anything into your namespace.

=head2 version

 my $version = version($value);

This is the short form of the constructor, if you are sane.  It is
NOT exported by default so you will have to explicitly import it.

=head1 METHODS

=head2 as_string

 my $string = $version->as_string;
 my $string = "$version";

Returns the string representation of the version object.

=head2 cmp

 my $bool = $version->cmp($other);
 my $bool = $version <=> $other;
 my $bool = $version cmp $other;

Returns C<-1>, C<0> or C<1> just like the regular C<E<lt>=E<gt>> and C<cmp>
operators.  Although C<$version> must be a version object, C<$other> may
be either a version object, or a string that could be used to create a
valid version object.

=head1 SEE ALSO

=over 4

=item L<Sort::Versions>

Good, especially if you have to support rpm style versions (like C<1.2.3-2-b>)
or don't care if trailing zeros (C<1.2.3> vs C<>) are treated as
different values.

=item L<version>

Problematic for historical reasons.
