Change the version number to "2.00.RC1". Yes, with quotes.
Where? Did you change that in Build.PL or in the $VERSION assignment in
the main .pm file?
Version '2.00.' ?
Did I miss something in the docs about not being able to manifacture
your own version number?
Version number is the applicable phrase there. Perl doesn't understand
anything except numbers (and PAUSE/CPAN too as far as I know). You
/could/ use version::AlphaBeta (but I wouldn't recommend it). This
doesn't really have anything to do with version.pm, per se, but that
won't help matters (since the parser will explicitly stop at the first
non-numeric). Try running `perl -w Build.PL` and see what that tells you.
You cannot just dump random text into $VERSION and expect it to work.
Among other things, how do you expect tools to sort this release with
all of the other releases you are making?
