NAME
       Dpkg::Control - parse and manipulate official control-like information

DESCRIPTION
       The Dpkg::Control object	is a smart version of Dpkg::Control::Hash.  It
       associates a type to the	control	information. That type can be used to
       know what fields	are allowed and	in what	order they must	be output.

       The types are constants that are	exported by default. Here's the	full
       list:

       CTRL_UNKNOWN
	   This	type is	the default type, it indicates that the	type of
	   control information is not yet known.

       CTRL_INFO_SRC
	   Corresponds to the first block of information in a debian/control
	   file	in a Debian source package.

       CTRL_INFO_PKG
	   Corresponds to subsequent blocks of information in a	debian/control
	   file	in a Debian source package.

       CTRL_REPO_RELEASE
	   Corresponds to a Release file in a repository.

       CTRL_INDEX_SRC
	   Corresponds to an entry in a	Sources	file of	a source package
	   repository.

       CTRL_INDEX_PKG
	   Corresponds to an entry in a	Packages file of a binary package
	   repository.

       CTRL_PKG_SRC
	   Corresponds to a .dsc file of a Debian source package.

       CTRL_PKG_DEB
	   Corresponds to the control file generated by	dpkg-gencontrol
	   (DEBIAN/control) and	to the same file inside	.deb packages.

       CTRL_FILE_BUILDINFO
	   Corresponds to a .buildinfo file.

       CTRL_FILE_CHANGES
	   Corresponds to a .changes file.

       CTRL_FILE_VENDOR
	   Corresponds to a vendor file	in $Dpkg::CONFDIR/origins/.

       CTRL_FILE_STATUS
	   Corresponds to an entry in dpkg's status file
	   ($Dpkg::ADMINDIR/status).

       CTRL_CHANGELOG
	   Corresponds to the output of	dpkg-parsechangelog.

       CTRL_COPYRIGHT_HEADER
	   Corresponds to the header control block in a	debian/copyright file
	   in machine readable format.

       CTRL_COPYRIGHT_FILES
	   Corresponds to a files control block	in a debian/copyright file in
	   machine readable format.

       CTRL_COPYRIGHT_LICENSE
	   Corresponds to a license control block in a debian/copyright	file
	   in machine readable format.

       CTRL_TESTS
	   Corresponds to a package tests control file in
	   debian/tests/control.

METHODS
       All the methods of Dpkg::Control::Hash are available. Those listed
       below are either	new or overridden with a different behaviour.

       $c = Dpkg::Control->new(%opts)
	   If the "type" option	is given, it's used to setup default values
	   for other options. See set_options()	for more details.

       $c->set_options(%opts)
	   Changes the value of	one or more options. If	the "type" option is
	   changed, it is used first to	define default values for others
	   options. The	option "allow_pgp" is set to 1 for CTRL_PKG_SRC,
	   CTRL_FILE_CHANGES and CTRL_REPO_RELEASE and to 0 otherwise. The
	   option "drop_empty" is set to 0 for CTRL_INFO_PKG and CTRL_INFO_SRC
	   and to 1 otherwise. The option "name" is set	to a textual
	   description of the type of control information.

	   The output order is also set	to match the ordered list returned by
	   Dpkg::Control::Fields::field_ordered_list($type).

       $c->get_type()
	   Returns the type of control information stored. See the type
	   parameter set during	new().
