PPM: deps versioning fixed

A Puppy-format package database entry has a dependencies field that may have optional versioning, examples:

|+ncurses,+readline&ge2.3.5,+glibc|
|+ncurses,+readline,+linux_kernel&ge2.6.39&lt3.0|


Where the operators may be:
&ge, &gt, &eq, &le, &lt

...this was documented awhile back in my blog.

At the time, I didn't quite implement it fully in the Puppy Package Manager, or rather I did but didn't test it. Forum member npierce has been investigating this, and has posted a solution to the Forum:

This fix looks good, I have put it into Woof:

ppm:bug or not
The problem is that "puppy package manager" doesnt update the list of repositories when i change it from ppm configuration configuration. it stays the same untill you start ppm again. is this a bug or was it intended that way(for reasons unknown to me).

Re ppm config
It states in bold letters in the Configuration window that the PPM must be restarted for changes to take effect.
