/* Compare version strings:

   This function compares strings S1 and S2:
   1) By PREFIX in the same way as strcmp.
   2) Then by VERSION (most similarly to version compare of Debian's dpkg).
      Leading zeros in version numbers are ignored.
   3) If both (PREFIX and  VERSION) are equal, strcmp function is used for
      comparison. So this function can return 0 if (and only if) strings S1
      and S2 are identical.

   It returns number >0 for S1 > S2, 0 for S1 == S2 and number <0 for S1 < S2.

   This function compares strings, in a way that if VER1 and VER2 are version
   numbers and PREFIX and SUFFIX (SUFFIX defined as (\.[A-Za-z~][A-Za-z0-9~]*)*)
   are strings then VER1 < VER2 implies filevercmp (PREFIX VER1 SUFFIX,
   PREFIX VER2 SUFFIX) < 0.

   This function is intended to be a replacement for strverscmp. */
