Lintian::Group: A group of objects that Lintian can process

NAME

Lintian::Group -- A group of objects that Lintian can process

SYNOPSIS

 use Lintian::Group;

 my $group = Lintian::Group->new('lintian_2.5.0_i386.changes');

DESCRIPTION

Instances of this perl class are sets of processables. It allows at most one source and one changes or buildinfo package per set, but multiple binary packages (provided that the binary is not already in the set).

METHODS

$group->pooldir
Returns or sets the pool directory used by this group.
$group->name
Returns a unique identifier for the group based on source and version.
$group->binary
Returns a hash reference to the binary processables in this group.
$group->buildinfo
Returns the buildinfo processable in this group.
$group->changes
Returns the changes processable in this group.
$group->source
Returns the source processable in this group.
$group->udeb
Returns a hash reference to the udeb processables in this group.
jobs
Returns or sets the max number of jobs to be processed in parallel.

If the limit is 0, then there is no limit for the number of parallel jobs.

cache
Cache for some items.
profile
Hash with active jobs.
"saved_direct_dependencies"
"saved_direct_reliants"
"saved_spelling_exceptions"
"shared_storage"
Lintian::Group->init_from_file (FILE)
Add all processables from .changes or .buildinfo file FILE.
unpack
Unpack this group.
process
Process group.
clean_lab
Removes the lab files to conserve disk space. Global destruction will also get these unless we are keeping the lab.
$group->add_processable($proc)
Adds $proc to $group. At most one source and one changes $proc can be in a $group. There can be multiple binary $proc's, as long as they are all unique. Successive buildinfo $proc's are silently ignored.

This will error out if an additional source or changes $proc is added to the group. Otherwise it will return a truth value if $proc was added.

$group->get_processables([$type])
Returns an array of all processables in $group. The processables are returned in the following order: changes (if any), source (if any), all binaries (if any) and all udebs (if any).

This order is based on the original order that Lintian processed packages in and some parts of the code relies on this order.

Note if $type is given, then only processables of that type is returned.

$group->get_binary_processables
Returns all binary (and udeb) processables in $group.

If $group does not have any binary processables then an empty list is returned.

$group->info
direct_dependencies (PROC)
If PROC is a part of the underlying processable group, this method returns a listref containing all the direct dependencies of PROC. If PROC is not a part of the group, this returns undef.

Note: Only strong dependencies (Pre-Depends and Depends) are considered.

Note: Self-dependencies (if any) are not included in the result.

direct_reliants (PROC)
If PROC is a part of the underlying processable group, this method returns a listref containing all the packages in the group that rely on PROC. If PROC is not a part of the group, this returns undef.

Note: Only strong dependencies (Pre-Depends and Depends) are considered.

Note: Self-dependencies (if any) are not included in the result.

$ginfo->type
Return the type of this collect object (which is the string 'group').
spelling_exceptions
Returns a hashref of words, which the spell checker should ignore. These words are generally based on the package names in the group to avoid false-positive ``spelling error'' when packages have ``fun'' names.

Example: Package alot-doc (#687464)

$group->clear_cache
Discard the info element of all members of this group, so the memory used by it can be reclaimed. Mostly useful when checking a lot of packages (e.g. on lintian.d.o).
