Lintian::Processable::Control: access to collected control file data

NAME

Lintian::Processable::Control - access to collected control file data

SYNOPSIS

    use Lintian::Processable;
    my $processable = Lintian::Processable::Binary->new;

DESCRIPTION

Lintian::Processable::Control provides an interface to control file data.

INSTANCE METHODS

control
Returns the index for a binary control file.
control_index (FILE)
Returns a path object to FILE in the control.tar.gz. FILE must be relative to the root of the control.tar.gz and must be without leading slash (or ``./''). If FILE is not in the control.tar.gz, it returns "undef".

To get a list of entries in the control.tar.gz, see ``sorted_control_index''. To actually access the underlying file (e.g. the contents), use ``control ([FILE])''.

Note that the ``root directory'' (denoted by the empty string) will always be present, even if the underlying tarball omits it.

Needs-Info requirements for using control_index: bin-pkg-control

sorted_control_index
Returns a sorted array of file names listed in the control.tar.gz. The names will not have a leading slash (or ``./'') and can be passed to ``control ([FILE])'' or ``control_index (FILE)'' as is.

The array will not contain the entry for the ``root'' of the control.tar.gz.

Needs-Info requirements for using sorted_control_index: Same as control_index

control_index_resolved_path(PATH)
Resolve PATH (relative to the root of the package) and return the entry denoting the resolved path.

The resolution is done using resolve_path.

Needs-Info requirements for using control_index_resolved_path: Same as control_index
