       Dpkg::Source::Package - manipulate Debian source packages

       This module provides an object that can manipulate Debian source
       packages. While it supports both the extraction and the creation of
       source packages, the only API that is officially supported is the one
       that supports the extraction of the source package.

       my $string = get_default_diff_ignore_regex()
	   Returns the default diff ignore regex.

	   Set a regex as the new default diff ignore regex.

       my @array = get_default_tar_ignore_pattern()
	   Returns the default tar ignore pattern, as an array.

       $p = Dpkg::Source::Package->new(filename => $dscfile, options => {})
	   Creates a new object corresponding to the source package described
	   by the file $dscfile.

	   The options hash supports the following options:

		   If set to 1, do not apply Debian changes on the extracted
		   source package.

		   If set to 1, do not apply Debian-specific patches. This
		   options is specific for source packages using format "2.0"
		   and "3.0 (quilt)".

		   If set to 1, the check_signature() method will be stricter
		   and will error out if the signature can't be verified.

		   If set to 1, the extraction will copy the upstream tarballs
		   next the target directory. This is useful if you want to be
		   able to rebuild the source package after its extraction.

	   Returns the filename of the DSC file.

	   Returns the list of files referenced by the source package. The
	   filenames usually do not have any path information.

	   Verify the checksums embedded in the DSC file. It requires the
	   presence of the other files constituting the source package. If any
	   inconsistency is discovered, it immediately errors out.

       $bool = $p->is_signed()
	   Returns 1 if the DSC files contains an embedded OpenPGP signature.
	   Otherwise returns 0.

	   Implement the same OpenPGP signature check that dpkg-source does.
	   In case of problems, it prints a warning or errors out.

	   If the object has been created with the "require_valid_signature"
	   option, then any problem will result in a fatal error.

	   Extracts the source package in the target directory $targetdir.
	   Beware that if $targetdir already exists, it will be erased.
