@deftypefun int strverscmp (const char *@var{s1}, const char *@var{s2})
The @code{strverscmp} function compares the string @var{s1} against
@var{s2}, considering them as holding indices/version numbers. Return
value follows the same conventions as found in the @code{strverscmp}
function. In fact, if @var{s1} and @var{s2} contain no digits,
@code{strverscmp} behaves like @code{strcmp}.
Basically, we compare strings normally (character by character), until
we find a digit in each string - then we enter a special comparison
mode, where each sequence of digits is taken as a whole. If we reach the
end of these two parts without noticing a difference, we return to the
standard comparison mode. There are two types of numeric parts:
"integral" and "fractional" (those begin with a '0'). The types
of the numeric parts affect the way we sort them:
@itemize @bullet
@item
integral/integral: we compare values as you would expect.
@item
fractional/integral: the fractional part is less than the integral one.
Again, no surprise.
@item
fractional/fractional: the things become a bit more complex.
If the common prefix contains only leading zeroes, the longest part is less
than the other one; else the comparison behaves normally.
@end itemize
@smallexample
strverscmp ("no digit", "no digit")
@result{} 0 // @r{same behavior as strcmp.}
strverscmp ("item#99", "item#100")
@result{} <0 // @r{same prefix, but 99 < 100.}
strverscmp ("alpha1", "alpha001")
@result{} >0 // @r{fractional part inferior to integral one.}
strverscmp ("part1_f012", "part1_f01")
@result{} >0 // @r{two fractional parts.}
strverscmp ("foo.009", "foo.0")
@result{} <0 // @r{idem, but with leading zeroes only.}
@end smallexample
This function is especially useful when dealing with filename sorting,
because filenames frequently hold indices/version numbers.
