       Bio::Root::Version - provide global, distribution-level versioning


         package Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature;
         require Bio::Root::RootI;

         # later, in client code:
         package main;
         use Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature 3.14;

         ## alternative usage: NiftyFeature defines own $VERSION:
         package Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature;
         my $VERSION = 9.8;

         # later in client code:
         package main;

         # ensure we're using an up-to-date BioPerl distribution
         use Bio::Perl 3.14;

         # NiftyFeature has its own versioning scheme:
         use Bio::Tools::NiftyFeature 9.8;


       This module provides a mechanism by which all other BioPerl modules can share the same
       $VERSION, without manually synchronizing each file.

       Bio::Root::RootI itself uses this module, so any module that directly (or indirectly) uses
       Bio::Root::RootI will get a global $VERSION variable set if it's not already.


   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send
       your comments and suggestions preferably to one of the Bioperl mailing lists.  Your
       participation is much appreciated.
                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists

       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will
       be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description
       of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.
