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.
