Dpkg::Changelog::Debian: parse Debian changelogs
Dpkg::Changelog::Debian - parse Debian changelogs
DESCRIPTIONDpkg::Changelog::Debian parses Debian changelogs as described in the Debian policy (version 220.127.116.11 at the time of this writing). See section ``SEE ALSO'' for locations where to find this definition.
The parser tries to ignore most cruft like # or /* */ style comments, CVS comments, vim variables, emacs local variables and stuff from older changelogs with other formats at the end of the file. NOTE: most of these are ignored silently currently, there is no parser error issued for them. This should become configurable in the future.
