Dpkg::Changelog::Debian - parse Debian changelogs
Dpkg::Changelog::Debian parses Debian changelogs as described in the
Debian policy (version 126.96.36.199 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.
Read the filehandle and parse a Debian changelog in it. Returns the
number of changelog entries that have been parsed with success.
Description of the Debian changelog format in the Debian policy:
Version 1.00 (dpkg 1.15.6)
Mark the module as public.
