NAME AptPkg::Version - APT package versioning class
SYNOPSIS use AptPkg::Version;
DESCRIPTION The AptPkg::Version module provides an interface to APT's package version handling. AptPkg::Version The AptPkg::Version package implements the APT pkgVersioningSystem class. An instance of the AptPkg::Version class may be fetched using the "versioning" method from an AptPkg::System object. The following methods are implemented: label Return the description of the versioning system, for example: Standard .deb for Debian systems. compare(A, B) Compare package version A with B, returning a negative value if A is an earlier version than B, zero if the same or a positive value if A is later. rel_compare(A, B) Compare distribution release numbers. check_dep(PKG, OP, DEP) Check that the package version PKG satisfies the relation OP to the dependency version DEP. The relation OP is specified in the Debian syntax regardless of the versioning system: << strictly earlier <= earlier or equal = exactly equal >= later or equal >> strictly later upstream(VER) Return the upstream component of the given version string.
