|$f = field_capitalize($field_name)||Returns the field name properly capitalized. All characters are lowercase, except the first of each word (words are separated by a hyphen in field names).|
|field_is_official($fname)||Returns true if the field is official and known.|
Returns true (1) if the field $fname is allowed in all the types listed in
the list. Note that you can use type sets instead of individual types (ex:
CTRL_FILE_CHANGES | CTRL_CHANGELOG).
field_allowed_in(A|B, C) returns true only if the field is allowed in C and either A or B.
Undef is returned for non-official fields.
|field_transfer_single($from, $to, $field)||
If appropriate, copy the value of the field named $field taken from the
$from Dpkg::Control object to the $to Dpkg::Control object.
Official fields are copied only if the field is allowed in both types of objects. Custom fields are treated in a specific manner. When the target is not among CTRL_PKG_SRC, CTRL_PKG_DEB or CTRL_FILE_CHANGES, then they are alway copied as is (the X- prefix is kept). Otherwise they are not copied except if the target object matches the target destination encoded in the field name. The initial X denoting custom fields can be followed by one or more letters among S (Source: corresponds to CTRL_PKG_SRC), B (Binary: corresponds to CTRL_PKG_DEB) or C (Changes: corresponds to CTRL_FILE_CHANGES).
Returns undef if nothing has been copied or the name of the new field added to $to otherwise.
Transfer all appropriate fields from $from to $to. Calls
field_transfer_single() on all fields available in $from.
Returns the list of fields that have been added to $to.
|field_ordered_list($type)||Returns an ordered list of fields for a given type of control information. This list can be used to output the fields in a predictable order. The list might be empty for types where the order does not matter much.|
|field_list_src_dep()||List of fields that contains dependencies-like information in a source Debian package.|
|field_list_pkg_dep()||List of fields that contains dependencies-like information in a binary Debian package. The fields that express real dependencies are sorted from the stronger to the weaker.|
|field_get_dep_type($field)||Return the type of the dependency expressed by the given field. Can either be normal for a real dependency field (Pre-Depends, Depends, ...) or union for other relation fields sharing the same syntax (Conflicts, Breaks, ...). Returns undef for fields which are not dependencies.|
|field_get_sep_type($field)||Return the type of the field value separator. Can be one of FIELD_SEP_UNKNOWN, FIELD_SEP_SPACE, FIELD_SEP_COMMA or FIELD_SEP_LINE.|
|field_register($field, $allowed_types, %opts)||Register a new field as being allowed in control information of specified types. %opts is optional|
|field_insert_after($type, $ref, @fields)||Place field after another one ($ref) in output of control information of type $type.|
|field_insert_before($type, $ref, @fields)||Place field before another one ($ref) in output of control information of type $type.|
