marko releases alpha binary of external version string
Quite a regular
Quite a regular


See User information
There's an update of Extversion on OpenAmiga.org.

Seen here: link

Quote:
I made some more progress today and as a result Alpha 3 is ready and available to download on [View Files] tab/link of this project ([View Project]).
Link:
http://openamiga.org/index.php?function=viewfiles&projectid=32

Remember this is an Alpha version meaning it is not deeply tested and has a lot of things that doesn't work yet like all options and deep error checking.

But if a proper Extversion cookie has been place in a file like:
"�$EXTVER: programname version.revision (dd.mm.yyyy) comment�"
(with leading and trailing zero character, � is a zero character)

it will find it with this command from shell like:
1> extversion programname

and output:
programname version.revision (dd.mm.yyyy) comment

So what is left (except fixing bugs):
* implement some options
* more error checking
* tidy up the code (to meet some guidelines and make a few more code comments)
* finish the documentation
* possibly a simple installer
* etc etc.

Hint: You can test the extversion file on itself, it has the EXTVER tag, like:
1> extversion extversion

Goodnight!

What exactly is the difference between this and

version full
?

Which will also display the 'comment' after the date section on a seperate line?

It will allow a separate version cookie that is solely intended for a non amiga version.

I trust you can do version compares against this new string as well? Which wouldn't be possible if the "non-Amiga version" was just in the comment part of the usual $VER string.

The quoted format in the quoted test in the original post looks very like a standard amiga version to me, hence my question


@Chris

Version testing on a non standard version format would be quite tricky though. You could assume it's always in linux format vers.rev.subrev but many foreign apps don't stick to that rule either.

Very true. However, even an "exact match" might be worthwhile (hmm, you could probably do that with the comment part anyway)

I agree, not the best example in the test quoted. I try to give a better example next time.

The point is to store a non Amiga version (f.ex. a Linux version) along with the "normal" Amiga version. So you have both the $VER: and $EXTVER: in a binary at the same time.

I added the "versions compare-exact match" to the do list to be implemented in the future.


Otherwise, version testing on non standard versions might be pretty tricky as broadblues says.
