NAME
       Dpkg::Conf - parse dpkg configuration files

DESCRIPTION
       The Dpkg::Conf object can be used to read options from a	configuration
       file. It	can export an array that can then be parsed exactly like
       @ARGV.

METHODS
       $conf = Dpkg::Conf->new(%opts)
	   Create a new	Dpkg::Conf object. Some	options	can be set through
	   %opts: if allow_short evaluates to true (it defaults	to false),
	   then	short options are allowed in the configuration file, they
	   should be prepended with a single hyphen.

       @$conf
       @options	= $conf->get_options()
	   Returns the list of options that can	be parsed like @ARGV.

       get()
       set()
	   Obsolete functions, use get_options() instead. They will croak.

       $conf->load($file)
	   Read	options	from a file. Return the	number of options parsed.

       $conf->load_system_config($file)
	   Read	options	from a system configuration file.

	   Return the number of	options	parsed.

       $conf->load_user_config($file)
	   Read	options	from a user configuration file.	It will	try to use the
	   XDG directory, either $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/dpkg/	or
	   $HOME/.config/dpkg/.

	   Return the number of	options	parsed.

       $conf->load_config($file)
	   Read	options	from system and	user configuration files.

	   Return the number of	options	parsed.

       $conf->parse($fh)
	   Parse options from a	file handle. When called multiple times, the
	   parsed options are accumulated.

	   Return the number of	options	parsed.

       $conf->filter(%opts)
	   Filter the list of options, either removing or keeping all those
	   that	return true when $opts{remove}->($option) or
	   $opts{keep}->($option) is called.

       $string = $conf->output($fh)
	   Write the options in	the given filehandle (if defined) and return a
	   string representation of the	content	(that would be)	written.

       "$conf"
	   Return a string representation of the content.

       $conf->save($file)
	   Save	the options in a file.
