Dpkg::Vendor - get access to some vendor specific information


The files in $Dpkg::CONFDIR/origins/ can provide information about various vendors who are providing Debian packages. Currently those files look like this: Vendor: Debian Vendor-URL: https://www.debian.org/ Bugs: debbugs://bugs.debian.org If the vendor derives from another vendor, the file should document the relationship by listing the base distribution in the Parent field: Parent: Debian The file should be named according to the vendor name.


$dir = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_dir() Returns the current dpkg origins directory name, where the vendor files are stored. $fields = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_info($name) Returns a Dpkg::Control object with the information parsed from the corresponding vendor file in $Dpkg::CONFDIR/origins/. If $name is omitted, it will use $Dpkg::CONFDIR/origins/default which is supposed to be a symlink to the vendor of the currently installed operating system. Returns undef if there's no file for the given vendor. $name = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_file($name) Check if there's a file for the given vendor and returns its name. $name = Dpkg::Vendor::get_current_vendor() Returns the name of the current vendor. If DEB_VENDOR is set, it uses that first, otherwise it falls back to parsing $Dpkg::CONFDIR/origins/default. If that file doesn't exist, it returns undef. $object = Dpkg::Vendor::get_vendor_object($name) Return the Dpkg::Vendor::* object of the corresponding vendor. If $name is omitted, return the object of the current vendor. If no vendor can be identified, then return the Dpkg::Vendor::Default object. Dpkg::Vendor::run_vendor_hook($hookid, @params) Run a hook implemented by the current vendor object.
