tools/release/update_version.pl - Update version numbers in a few files
perl tools/release/update_version.pl <new_version>
This program is meant to be used by the Parrot release manager. It will change the version numbers found in these 5 files only:
VERSION MANIFEST.generated README.pod include/parrot/oplib/core_ops.h src/ops/core_ops.c
During the release process, the Parrot version number must be updated in several files, but this program only operates on the three files above. You will have to revise the other files manually.
The version numbers must be of the form
n is one or more digits. Supply the old version first. No error-checking is performed to ensure, e.g., that the newer number properly increments the older.
The programm concludes by calling out
git diff so that you may review the changes.
