NAME

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

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

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

METHODS

@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 [ RaphaŽl 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.

UTILITY FUNCTIONS

$bool = match_header($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.
