DESCRIPTION

Lintian::Collect::Changes provides an interface to data for .changes files. It implements data collection methods specific to .changes files.

CLASS METHODS

new (PACKAGE)
Creates a new Lintian::Collect::Changes object. Currently, PACKAGE is ignored. Normally, this method should not be called directly, only via the Lintian::Collect constructor.

INSTANCE METHODS

In addition to the instance methods listed below, all instance methods documented in the Lintian::Collect module are also available.
files
Returns a reference to a hash containing information about files listed in the .changes file. Each hash may have the following keys:
name
Name of the file.
size
The size of the file in bytes.
section
The archive section to which the file belongs.
priority
The priority of the file.
checksums
A hash with the keys being checksum algorithms and the values themselves being hashes containing
sum
The result of applying the given algorithm to the file.
filesize
The size of the file as given in the .changes section relating to the given checksum.

Needs-Info requirements for using files: ``field ([FIELD[, DEFAULT]])'' in Lintian::Collect

repacked
Returns true if the source package referenced in this changes file has been ``repacked'' and false otherwise. This is determined from the version name containing ``dfsg'' or similar.

Needs-Info requirements for using repacked: Same as field
