Dpkg::Control::Info(3)		 libdpkg-perl		Dpkg::Control::Info(3)

NAME
       Dpkg::Control::Info - parse files like debian/control

DESCRIPTION
       It provides an object to	access data of files that follow the same
       syntax as debian/control.

METHODS
       $c = Dpkg::Control::Info->new(%opts)
	   Create a new	Dpkg::Control::Info object. Loads the file from	the
	   filename option, if no option is specified filename defaults	to
	   debian/control.  If a scalar	is passed instead, it will be used as
	   the filename. If filename is	"-", it	parses the standard input. If
	   filename is undef no	loading	will be	performed.

       $c->reset()
	   Resets what got read.

       $c->load($file)
	   Load	the content of $file. Exits in case of errors. If file is "-",
	   it loads from the standard input.

       $c->parse($fh, $description)
	   Parse a control file	from the given filehandle. Exits in case of
	   errors.  $description is used to describe the filehandle, ideally
	   it's	a filename or a	description of where the data comes from. It
	   is used in error messages.  The data	in the object is reset before
	   parsing new control files.

       $c->[0]
       $c->get_source()
	   Returns a Dpkg::Control object containing the fields	concerning the
	   source package.

       $c->get_pkg_by_idx($idx)
	   Returns a Dpkg::Control object containing the fields	concerning the
	   binary package numbered $idx	(starting at 1).

       $c->get_pkg_by_name($name)
	   Returns a Dpkg::Control object containing the fields	concerning the
	   binary package named	$name.

       $c->get_packages()
	   Returns a list containing the Dpkg::Control objects for all binary
	   packages.

       $c->output($filehandle)
	   Dump	the content into a filehandle.

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

       @{$c}
	   Return a list of Dpkg::Control objects, the first one is
	   corresponding to source information and the following ones are the
	   binary packages information.
