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