Lintian::Processable::Source::Relation: Lintian interface to source package data collection

NAME

Lintian::Processable::Source::Relation - Lintian interface to source package data collection

SYNOPSIS

    my ($name, $type, $dir) = ('foobar', 'source', '/path/to/lab-entry');
    my $collect = Lintian::Processable::Source::Relation->new($name);
    if ($collect->native) {
        print "Package is native\n";
    }

DESCRIPTION

Lintian::Processable::Source::Relation provides an interface to package data for source packages. It implements data collection methods specific to source packages.

This module is in its infancy. Most of Lintian still reads all data from files in the laboratory whenever that data is needed and generates that data via collect scripts. The goal is to eventually access all data about source packages via this module so that the module can cache data where appropriate and possibly retire collect scripts in favor of caching that data in memory.

INSTANCE METHODS

binary_relation (PACKAGE, FIELD)
Returns a Lintian::Relation object for the specified FIELD in the binary package PACKAGE in the debian/control file. FIELD should be one of the possible relationship fields of a Debian package or one of the following special values:
all
The concatenation of Pre-Depends, Depends, Recommends, and Suggests.
strong
The concatenation of Pre-Depends and Depends.
weak
The concatenation of Recommends and Suggests.

If FIELD isn't present in the package, the returned Lintian::Relation object will be empty (always satisfied and implies nothing).

Any substvars in debian/control will be represented in the returned relation as packages named after the substvar.

Needs-Info requirements for using binary_relation: Same as binary_field

saved_binary_relations
relation (FIELD)
Returns a Lintian::Relation object for the given build relationship field FIELD. In addition to the normal build relationship fields, the following special field names are supported:
build-depends-all
The concatenation of Build-Depends, Build-Depends-Arch and Build-Depends-Indep.
build-conflicts-all
The concatenation of Build-Conflicts, Build-Conflicts-Arch and Build-Conflicts-Indep.

If FIELD isn't present in the package, the returned Lintian::Relation object will be empty (always satisfied and implies nothing).

saved_relation
relation_noarch (FIELD)
The same as ``relation (FIELD)'', but ignores architecture restrictions and build profile restrictions in the FIELD field.
saved_relations_noarch
