Alien::Package::Deb - an object that represents a deb package
This is an object class that represents a deb package. It is derived from Alien::Package.
Set to a true value if dpkg-deb is available.
After the build stage, set to a hash reference of the directories we moved files from
and to, so these moves can be reverted in the cleantree stage.
If this is set to true, the generated debian/rules will run dh_fixperms.
Sets have_dpkg_deb if dpkg-deb is in the path. I prefer to use dpkg-deb, if it is
available since it is a lot more future-proof.
Detect deb files by their extention.
Install a deb with dpkg. Pass in the filename of the deb to install.
Test a deb with lintian. Pass in the filename of the deb to test.
Helper method. Pass it the name of a control file, and it will pull it out of the deb
and return it.
Implement the scan method to read a deb file.
Implement the unpack method to unpack a deb file.
This method tries to find a patch file to use in the prep stage. If it finds one, it
returns it. Pass in a list of directories to search for patches in.
Adds a populated debian directory the unpacked package tree, making it ready for
building. This can either be done automatically, or via a patch file.
Build a deb.
Delete the entire debian/ directory.
Set/get package name.
Always returns the packge name in lowercase with all invalid characters rmoved. The
name is however, stored unchanged.
Set/get package version.
When the version is set, it will be stripped of any epoch. If there is a release, the
release will be stripped away and used to set the release field as a side effect.
Otherwise, the release will be set to 1.
More sanitization of the version is done when the field is retrieved, to make sure it
is a valid debian version field.
Set/get package release.
Always returns a sanitized release version. The release is however, stored unchanged.
Although the description is stored internally unchanged, this will always return a
sanitized form of it that is compliant with Debian standards.
Returns the date, in rfc822 format.
Returns an email address for the current user.
Returns the user name of the real uid.
Returns the postinst. This may include generated shell code to set owners and groups
from the owninfo field, and update modes from the modeinfo field.
