       deb-shlibs - Debian shared library information file

       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.

       The  dependencies  field	 has the same syntax as	the Depends field in a
       binary control file, see	deb-control(5).

       The shlibs file for a typical library package, named  libcrunch1,  that
       provides	one library whose soname is, might read

	      libcrunch	1 libcrunch1 (>= 1.2-1)

       The  dependencies  must	mention	the most recent	version	of the package
       that added new symbols 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.

       deb-control(5), dpkg-shlibdeps(1), deb-symbols(5).
