I'm looking for a peer-reviewed solutions for managing versions (dll
compatibiity, data formats, etc.). If they exist, they're pretty
hard to find. ( FWIW, searches with the terms "version" or
"versioning" aren't very helpful :-()
To date all I've been able to find are ad hoc discussions on matching
a specific version. Ultimately, I _think_ I'm looking for
1) a base class for a version specification
2) a range for version compatibility
3)a mixin class (with compatibility check methods) for objects
requiring version compatibility.
The two use cases I have in mind are:
1) - an application wishes to verify compatibility of a dlopen()'d
module as well as the compatibility of its separately compiled objects.
2) - a decoder wishes to verify compatibility with a data file
Have there been any discussions on this topic in the boost domain?
If so, how would I find it?
Any one have ideas where else I could look? Or any useful codewords to search
