NAME
       deb-shlibs - Debian shared library information file

DESCRIPTION
       shlibs  files map shared library names and versions (sonames) to dependencies suitable for
       a package control file.	There is one entry per line. Blank lines are not allowed.   Lines
       beginning with an # character are considered commentary, and are ignored.  All other lines
       must have the format

	      [type:] library version dependencies

       The library and version	fields	are  whitespace-delimited,  but  the  dependencies  field
       extends to the end of the line.	The type field is optional and normally not needed.

       See the Debian Policy Manual for further details.

EXAMPLES
       The shlibs file for a typical library package, named libcrunch1, that provides one library
       whose soname is libcrunch.so.1, might read

	      libcrunch 1 libcrunch1 (>= 1.2-1)

       The dependencies must mention the most recent version of the package that added	new  sym-
       bols  to  the  library:	in  the  above	example, new symbols were added to version 1.2 of
       libcrunch.  This is not the only reason the  dependencies  might  need  to  be  tightened;
       again, see the Debian Policy Manual for details.
