Discussion

U_PARSEVERSION parses a version number string (ver_number) into numeric values.

The version_num string is expected to be in the form v.r.m, where v is the application version number, r is the major revision number, and m is the minor revision number.

You can use an uppercase letter for a two‑byte version number. For example, you can use A for 10, as in A.1.1 (for 10.1.1). But note that if you use an uppercase letter, it must be the first character of v, r, or m. In this case, the second character is ignored—for example, 1A.2.3 is interpreted as 1.2.3, and A1.2.3 is interpreted as 10.2.3.
