NAME
       Alien::Package::Slp - an object that represents a slp package

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

CLASS DATA
       The following data is global to the class, and is used to describe the slp package format,
       which this class processes directly.

       footer_size
	   Complete sizeof(slpformat) from slp.h in the stampede package manager source.

       footer_packstring
	   This is the pack format string for the footer. (A=space terminated character,
	   I=unsigned integer.)

       footer_version
	   What package format are we up to now? (Lowest one this is still compatable with.)

       archtrans
	   This is a translation table between architectures and the number that represents them
	   in a slp package.

       fieldlist
	   This is a list of all the fields in the order they appear in the footer.

FIELDS
       compresstype
	   Holds the compression type used in the slp file.

       slpkgversion
	   Holds the slp package format version of the slp file.

METHODS
       checkfile
	   Detect slp files by their extention.

       install
	   Install a slp. Pass in the filename of the slp to install.

       getfooter
	   Pulls the footer out of the slp file and returns it.

       scan
	   Implement the scan method to read a slp file.

       unpack
	   Unpack a slp file. They can be compressed in various ways, depending on what is in the
	   compresstype field.

       build
	   Build a slp.

       conffiles
	   Set/get conffiles.

	   When the conffiles are set, the format used by slp (a colon-delimited list) is turned
	   into the real list that is used internally. The list is changed back into slp's
	   internal format when it is retreived.

       copyright
	   Set/get copyright.

	   When the copyright is set, the number used by slp is changed into a textual
	   description. This is changed back into a number when the value is retreived.

       arch
	   Set/get arch.

	   When the arch is set, the number used by slp is changed into a textual description.
	   This is changed back into a number when the value is retreived.

       release
	   Set/get release version.

	   When the release version is retreived, it is converted to an unsigned integer, as is
	   required by the slp package format.
