1 common.inc backdrop_parse_dependency($dependency)

Parses a dependency for comparison by backdrop_check_incompatibility().

Parameters

$dependency: A dependency string, which specifies a module dependency, and optionally the project it comes from and versions that are supported. Supported formats include:

  • 'module'
  • 'project:module'
  • 'project:module (>=version, version)'

Return value

An associative array with three keys::

  • 'project' includes the name of the project containing the module.
  • 'name' includes the name of the module to depend on.
  • 'original_version' contains the original version string (which can be used in the UI for reporting incompatibilities).
  • 'versions' is a list of associative arrays, each containing the keys 'op' and 'version'. 'op' can be one of: '=', '==', '!=', '<>', '<', '<=', '>', or '>='. 'version' is one piece like '4.5-beta3'.

Callers should pass this structure to backdrop_check_incompatibility().

          // on the other hand, treats "x" as a string; so to
          // version_compare(), "2.x" is considered less than 2.0. This
          // means that >=2.x and <2.x are handled by version_compare()
