=head1 NAME

Alien::Build::Plugin::Prefer::GoodVersion - Plugin to filter known good versions

=head1 VERSION

version 2.50


 use alienfile;
 plugin 'Prefer::GoodVersion' => '1.2.3';


This plugin allows you to specify one or more good versions of a library.  This doesn't affect
a system install at all.  This plugin does the opposite of the C<Prefer::BadVersion> plugin.
You need need a Prefer plugin that filters and sorts files first.  You may specify the filter
in one of three ways:


=item as a string

Filter any files that match the given version.

 use alienfile;
 plugin 'Prefer::GoodVersion' => '1.2.3';

=item as an array

Filter all files that match any of the given versions.

 use alienfile;
 plugin 'Prefer::GoodVersion' => [ '1.2.3', '1.2.4' ];

=item as a code reference

Filter any files return a true value.

 use alienfile;
 plugin 'Prefer::GoodVersion' => sub {
   my($file) = @_;
   $file->{version} eq '1.2.3'; # same as the string version above


This plugin can also be used to filter known good versions of a library on just one platform.
For example, if you know that version 1.2.3 if good on windows, but the default logic is fine
on other platforms:

 use alienfile;
 plugin 'Prefer::GoodVersion' => '1.2.3' if $^O eq 'MSWin32';


=head2 filter

Filter entries that match the filter.

=head1 CAVEATS

If you are using the string or array mode, then you need an existing Prefer plugin that sets the
version number for each file candidate, such as L<Alien::Build::Plugin::Prefer::SortVersions>.

Unless you want to exclude the latest version from a share install, this plugin isn't really
that useful.  It has no effect on system installs, which may not be obvious at first.
