Description

A typical distribution of a Perl module has embedded version numbers is a number of places. Typically the version will be mentioned in the README file and in each module's source. For a module the version may appear twice: once in the code and once in the pod.

This script makes it possible to update all of these version numbers with a simple command.

To update the version numbers of specific files name them on the command line. Any directories will be recursively expanded.

If used with no filename arguments perl-reversion will attempt to update README and any files below lib/ in the current project.

Options

"-bump"

Attempt to make the smallest possible increment to the version. The least significant part of the version string is incremented.

1       =>  2
1.1     =>  1.2
1.1.1   =>  1.1.2
1.1.1_1 =>  1.1.1_2
"-bump-revision"
"-bump-version"
"-bump-subversion"
"-bump-alpha"
Increment the specified version component. Like the "inc_*" methods of Perl::Version, incrementing a component sets all components to the right of it to zero.
"-set <version>"
Set the version to the specified value. Unless the "-normal" option is also specified the format of each individual version string will be preserved.
"-current <version>"
Specify the current version. Only matching version strings will be updated.
"-normal"
"-numify"
"-stringify"
Use a specific formatting, as in "Formatting" in Perl::Version.

Alone, these options control how the current (found) version is displayed.

With "-bump" or "-set", also update version strings to have the given formatting, regardless of the version format passed to "-set" or the current version (for "-bump").

If none of these options are specified, perl-reversion will preserve the formatting of each individual version string (the same as "-stringify").
"-dryrun"
If set, perl-reversion will not save files. Use this to see what gets changed before it actually happens.
