sprintf looks like a good solution.

As I am not very familiar with pack I thought I'd try using it in this case, and here is what I got. Note that this code is tested but it is by no means authoritative, feel free to point my mistakes.

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; while( <DATA>) { chomp; my( $v1, $expected_res, $v2)= split /\s+/; my $pv1= pack( 'I3', split( /\./, $v1)); my $pv2= pack( 'I3', split( /\./, $v2)); my $res; if( $pv1 gt $pv2) { $res= '>'; } elsif( $pv1 lt $pv2) { $res= '<'; } elsif( $pv1 eq $pv2) { $res= '='; } if( $res eq $expected_res) { print "ok $v1 $res $v2\n"; } else { print "NOK $v1 $res $v2 should be $v +1 $expected_res $v2\n"; } } __DATA__ 1.2 < 1.3 1.3 > 1.2 1.2.1 > 1.2 1.2.1 < 1.3 1.2.1 < 1.2.2 1.2.2 > 1.2.1 1.2.10 > 1.2.2 1.2.2 < 1.2.10 1.2 = 1.2 1.2.1 = 1.2.1 1.2.10 = 1.2.10

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
