5# SYNOPSIS
6#
7# AX_COMPARE_VERSION(VERSION_A, OP, VERSION_B, [ACTION-IF-TRUE], [ACTION-IF-FALSE])
8#
9# DESCRIPTION
10#
11# This macro compares two version strings. Due to the various number of
12# minor-version numbers that can exist, and the fact that string
13# comparisons are not compatible with numeric comparisons, this is not
14# necessarily trivial to do in a autoconf script. This macro makes doing
15# these comparisons easy.
16#
17# The six basic comparisons are available, as well as checking equality
18# limited to a certain number of minor-version levels.
19#
20# The operator OP determines what type of comparison to do, and can be one
21# of:
22#
23# eq - equal (test A == B)
24# ne - not equal (test A != B)
25# le - less than or equal (test A <= B)
26# ge - greater than or equal (test A >= B)
27# lt - less than (test A < B)
28# gt - greater than (test A > B)
29#
30# Additionally, the eq and ne operator can have a number after it to limit
31# the test to that number of minor versions.
32#
33# eq0 - equal up to the length of the shorter version
34# ne0 - not equal up to the length of the shorter version
35# eqN - equal up to N sub-version levels
36# neN - not equal up to N sub-version levels
37#
38# When the condition is true, shell commands ACTION-IF-TRUE are run,
39# otherwise shell commands ACTION-IF-FALSE are run. The environment
40# variable 'ax_compare_version' is always set to either 'true' or 'false'
41# as well.
42#
43# Examples:
44#
45# AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[lt],[3.15.8])
46# AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15],[lt],[3.15.8])
47#
48# would both be true.
49#
50# AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[eq],[3.15.8])
51# AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15],[gt],[3.15.8])
52#
53# would both be false.
54#
55# AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[eq2],[3.15.8])
56#
57# would be true because it is only comparing two minor versions.
58#
59# AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[eq0],[3.15])
60#
61# would be true because it is only comparing the lesser number of minor
62# versions of the two values.
63#
64# Note: The characters that separate the version numbers do not matter. An
65# empty string is the same as version 0. OP is evaluated by autoconf, not
66# configure, so must be a string, not a variable.
67#
68# The author would like to acknowledge Guido Draheim whose advice about
69# the m4_case and m4_ifvaln functions make this macro only include the
70# portions necessary to perform the specific comparison specified by the
71# OP argument in the final configure script.
