Lintian::Processable::Installed: access to collected data about the upstream (orig) sources

NAME

Lintian::Processable::Installed - access to collected data about the upstream (orig) sources

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

Lintian::Processable::Installed provides an interface to collected data about the upstream (orig) sources.

INSTANCE METHODS

installed
Returns a index object representing installed files from a binary package.
index (FILE)
Returns a path object to FILE in the package. FILE must be relative to the root of the unpacked package and must be without leading slash (or ``./''). If FILE is not in the package, it returns "undef". If FILE is supposed to be a directory, it must be given with a trailing slash. Example:

  my $file = $info->index ("usr/bin/lintian");
  my $dir = $info->index ("usr/bin/");

To get a list of entries in the package, see ``sorted_index''. To actually access the underlying file (e.g. the contents), use ``unpacked ([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 index: unpacked

sorted_index
Returns a sorted array of file names listed in the package. The names will not have a leading slash (or ``./'') and can be passed to ``unpacked ([FILE])'' or ``index (FILE)'' as is.

The array will not contain the entry for the ``root'' of the package.

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.
