Subject: [PATCH] Prevent loss of underscores and trailing zeroes
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 877b
A number of version numbers are mangled, due to them not being properly quoted. This occurs for version numbers with trailing zeroes: --cut-- $ corelist -a Thread Thread was first released with perl 5.005 5.005 1.0 5.00503 1 5.006 1.0 5.006001 1 5.007003 2.00 [...] --cut-- where the versions bundled with 5.6.0 and 5.6.1 are in fact identical, and for version numbers with embedded underscores: --cut-- $ corelist -a CPAN CPAN was first released with perl 5.004 5.004 1.2401 5.00405 1.40 5.005 1.3901 5.00503 1.48 5.00504 1.48 5.006 1.52 5.006001 1.5954 5.006002 1.59_54 5.007003 1.59_56 [...] --cut-- where the version bundled with 5.6.1 and 5.6.2 are identical. The attached patch fixes these anomalies, by quoting all version numbers with embedded underscores and trailing zeroes. /Lars
