Dpkg::Changelog::Entry::Debian - represents a Debian changelog entry


This object represents a Debian changelog entry. It implements the generic interface Dpkg::Changelog::Entry. Only functions specific to this implementation are described below.


@items = $entry->get_change_items() Return a list of change items. Each item contains at least one line. A change line starting with an asterisk denotes the start of a new item. Any change line like "[ Raphael Hertzog ]" is treated like an item of its own even if it starts a set of items attributed to this person (the following line necessarily starts a new item). @errors = $entry->check_header() @errors = $entry->check_trailer() Return a list of errors. Each item in the list is an error message describing the problem. If the empty list is returned, no errors have been found. $entry->normalize() Normalize the content. Strip whitespaces at end of lines, use a single empty line to separate each part.


$bool = match_header($line) Checks if the line matches a valid changelog header line. $bool = match_trailer($line) Checks if the line matches a valid changelog trailing line. @closed_bugs = find_closes($changes) Takes one string as argument and finds "Closes: #123456, #654321" statements as supported by the Debian Archive software in it. Returns all closed bug numbers in an array.


Version 1.01 (dpkg 1.17.2) New functions: match_header(), match_trailer() Deprecated variables: $regex_header, $regex_trailer Version 1.00 (dpkg 1.15.6) Mark the module as public.
