NAME
       Dpkg::Changelog::Debian - parse Debian changelogs

DESCRIPTION
       Dpkg::Changelog::Debian parses Debian changelogs as described in the
       Debian policy (version 3.6.2.1 at the time of this writing). See
       section "SEE ALSO" for locations where to find this definition.

       The parser tries to ignore most cruft like # or /* */ style comments,
       CVS comments, vim variables, emacs local variables and stuff from older
       changelogs with other formats at the end of the file.  NOTE: most of
       these are ignored silently currently, there is no parser error issued
       for them. This should become configurable in the future.

   METHODS
       $c->parse($fh, $description)
	   Read the filehandle and parse a Debian changelog in it. Returns the
	   number of changelog entries that have been parsed with success.
