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

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_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_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.

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

       my $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 and
	   CTRL_FILE_CHANGES 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().
