Bio::Root::Version - provide global, distribution-level versioning
Package variables
No package variables defined.
Synopsis
  package Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature;
require Bio::Root::RootI;
# later, in client code: package main; use Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature 3.14; ## alternative usage: NiftyFeature defines own $VERSION: package Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature; my $VERSION = 9.8; # later in client code: package main; # ensure we're using an up-to-date BioPerl distribution use Bio::Perl 3.14; # NiftyFeature has its own versioning scheme: use Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature 9.8;
Description
This module provides a mechanism by which all other BioPerl modules
can share the same $VERSION, without manually synchronizing each file.
Bio::Root::RootI itself uses this module, so any module that directly
(or indirectly) uses Bio::Root::RootI will get a global $VERSION
variable set if it's not already.
