This is to test the several implementations of Debian version comparison algorithms.
Run it via
run.py generates a file containing all permutations of pairs of versions. The
different programs then check whether versions are greater than, equal or less
than one another and output >, = and <, respectively in order. It is then
checked whether the output of all implementations is the same.
Currently, this checks the libdpkg C implementation, libapt and dose3.
Additionally, the following parsers could be added:
- libben-ocaml (in lib/benl_base.ml and lib/benl_dpkg.c)
The following do not use their own parser:
- python-debian uses python-apt
- libghc-dpkg-dev uses libdpkg-dev
- ruby-debian uses libapt-pkg-dev
- dpkg-dev-el uses
