Pure Python implementation of rpmvercmp

Project description

Pure Python implementation of rpmvercmp.

The RPM Package Manager ( has a version comparision algorithm, implemented in its C library, which performs the comparison in a certain way.

In certain circumstances, where the C library is not installable (for example, on non-rpm based systems), or does not support the desired version of the python interpreter, the pure-python implementation may be useful.


$ pip install rpm_vercmp


import rpm_vercmp assert rpm_vercmp.vercmp(“1.0”, “1.0”) == 0 assert rpm_vercmp.vercmp(“1.0”, “1.1”) == -1


The testsuite uses rpm’s test file in m4 format. The file cat be fetched from:
