##^ Constraints

den install and den pull will take advantage of ^ constraints e.g. ^1.2.3 if either of:

  • Your sdk constraint disallows pre-1.8.0 SDKs when ^ was introduced.
  • You pass the --caret flag, which updates your sdk constraint for you.

Otherwise, they will use range syntax e.g. >=1.2.3 <2.0.0

##Inspiration

den install was inspired by npm install --save and bower install --save den fetch and den pull were inspired by david and david update.
