dnl @synopsis AX_COMPARE_VERSION(VERSION_A, OP, VERSION_B, [ACTION-IF-TRUE], [ACTION-IF-FALSE])
dnl
dnl This macro compares two version strings. It is used heavily in the
dnl macro _AX_PATH_BDB for library checking. Due to the various number
dnl of minor-version numbers that can exist, and the fact that string
dnl comparisons are not compatible with numeric comparisons, this is
dnl not necessarily trivial to do in a autoconf script. This macro
dnl makes doing these comparisons easy.
dnl
dnl The six basic comparisons are available, as well as checking
dnl equality limited to a certain number of minor-version levels.
dnl
dnl The operator OP determines what type of comparison to do, and can
dnl be one of:
dnl
dnl eq - equal (test A == B)
dnl ne - not equal (test A != B)
dnl le - less than or equal (test A <= B)
dnl ge - greater than or equal (test A >= B)
dnl lt - less than (test A < B)
dnl gt - greater than (test A > B)
dnl
dnl Additionally, the eq and ne operator can have a number after it to
dnl limit the test to that number of minor versions.
dnl
dnl eq0 - equal up to the length of the shorter version
dnl ne0 - not equal up to the length of the shorter version
dnl eqN - equal up to N sub-version levels
dnl neN - not equal up to N sub-version levels
dnl
dnl When the condition is true, shell commands ACTION-IF-TRUE are run,
dnl otherwise shell commands ACTION-IF-FALSE are run. The environment
dnl variable 'ax_compare_version' is always set to either 'true' or
dnl 'false' as well.
dnl
dnl Examples:
dnl
dnl AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[lt],[3.15.8])
dnl AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15],[lt],[3.15.8])
dnl
dnl would both be true.
dnl
dnl AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[eq],[3.15.8])
dnl AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15],[gt],[3.15.8])
dnl
dnl would both be false.
dnl
dnl AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[eq2],[3.15.8])
dnl
dnl would be true because it is only comparing two minor versions.
dnl
dnl AX_COMPARE_VERSION([3.15.7],[eq0],[3.15])
dnl
dnl would be true because it is only comparing the lesser number of
dnl minor versions of the two values.
dnl
dnl Note: The characters that separate the version numbers do not
dnl matter. An empty string is the same as version 0. OP is evaluated
dnl by autoconf, not configure, so must be a string, not a variable.
dnl
dnl The author would like to acknowledge Guido Draheim whose advice
dnl about the m4_case and m4_ifvaln functions make this macro only
dnl include the portions necessary to perform the specific comparison
dnl specified by the OP argument in the final configure script.
