Dpkg::Changelog::Debian - parse Debian changelogs
Dpkg::Changelog::Debian parses Debian changelogs as described in the Debian policy
(version 188.8.131.52 at the time of this writing). See section "SEE ALSO" for locations where
to find this definition.
The parser tries to ignore most cruft like # or /* */ style comments, CVS comments, vim
variables, emacs local variables and stuff from older changelogs with other formats at the
end of the file. NOTE: most of these are ignored silently currently, there is no parser
error issued for them. This should become configurable in the future.
Read the filehandle and parse a Debian changelog in it. Returns the number of changelog
entries that have been parsed with success.
Description of the Debian changelog format in the Debian policy:
Frank Lichtenheld, <firstname.lastname@example.org> Raphael Hertzog, <email@example.com>
