Alien::Package::Deb(3pm)       User Contributed Perl Documentation	 Alien::Package::Deb(3pm)

NAME
       Alien::Package::Deb - an object that represents a deb package

DESCRIPTION
       This is an object class that represents a deb package. It is derived from Alien::Package.

FIELDS
       have_dpkg_deb
	   Set to a true value if dpkg-deb is available.

       dirtrans
	   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.

       fixperms
	   If this is set to true, the generated debian/rules will run dh_fixperms.

METHODS
       init
	   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.

       checkfile
	   Detect deb files by their extention.

       install
	   Install a deb with dpkg. Pass in the filename of the deb to install.

       test
	   Test a deb with lintian. Pass in the filename of the deb to test.

       getcontrolfile
	   Helper method. Pass it the name of a control file, and it will pull it out of the deb
	   and return it.

       scan
	   Implement the scan method to read a deb file.

       unpack
	   Implement the unpack method to unpack a deb file.

       getpatch
	   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.

       prep
	   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
	   Build a deb.

       cleantree
	   Delete the entire debian/ directory.

       package
	   Set/get package name.

	   Always returns the packge name in lowercase with all invalid characters rmoved. The
	   name is however, stored unchanged.

       version
	   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.

       release
	   Set/get package release.

	   Always returns a sanitized release version. The release is however, stored unchanged.

       description
	   Set/get description

	   Although the description is stored internally unchanged, this will always return a
	   sanitized form of it that is compliant with Debian standards.

       date
	   Returns the date, in rfc822 format.

       email
	   Returns an email address for the current user.

       username
	   Returns the user name of the real uid.

       postinst
	   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.
