Linux 2.6 - man page for dpkg::vendor (linux section 3)

Dpkg::Vendor(3) 			   libdpkg-perl 			  Dpkg::Vendor(3)

       Dpkg::Vendor - get access to some vendor specific information

       The files in /etc/dpkg/origins/ can provide information about various vendors who are
       providing Debian packages. Currently those files look like this:

	 Vendor: Debian
	 Vendor-URL: http://www.debian.org/
	 Bugs: debbugs://bugs.debian.org

       The file should be named according to the vendor name.

       $fields = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_info($name)
	   Returns a Dpkg::Control object with the information parsed from the corresponding
	   vendor file in /etc/dpkg/origins/. If $name is omitted, it will use
	   /etc/dpkg/origins/default which is supposed to be a symlink to the vendor of the
	   currently installed operating system. Returns undef if there's no file for the given

       $name = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_file($name)
	   Check if there's a file for the given vendor and returns its name.

       $name = Dpkg::Vendor::get_current_vendor()
	   Returns the name of the current vendor. If DEB_VENDOR is set, it uses that first,
	   otherwise it falls back to parsing /etc/dpkg/origins/default.  If that file doesn't
	   exist, it returns undef.

       $object = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_object($name)
	   Return the Dpkg::Vendor::* object of the corresponding vendor.  If $name is omitted,
	   return the object of the current vendor.  If no vendor can be identified, then return
	   the Dpkg::Vendor::Default object.

       Dpkg::Vendor::run_vendor_hook($hookid, @params)
	   Run a hook implemented by the current vendor object.				    2012-04-17				  Dpkg::Vendor(3)
