( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Dear wise monks, I was trying to get "use" to check the version number of a patched module from CPAN, and I discovered that it seems to test only numeric values (1.3, etc.) and not a typical three-part value of VERSION. In this case, version 1.2.5 won't work and 1.2.6 will. Do you know a way to get version checking to behave right? I have the following work-around, but it's a little ugly.
BEGIN { # Note: doing version check by hand because the following doesn't s +eem to work. # use Tk::WorldCanvas 1.2.6; require Tk::WorldCanvas; $Tk::WorldCanvas::VERSION ge "1.2.6" or croak "Need Tk::WorldCanvas + 1.2.6 or higher"; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
