RPM::Header::PurePerl - a perl only implementation of a RPM header reader.
tie my %rpm, "RPM::Header::PurePerl", "rpm-4.0-1-i586.rpm"
or die "Problem, could not open rpm";
RPM::Header::PurePerl is a clone of RPM::Header written in only Perl, so it provides a way to read a rpm package on systems where rpm is not installed. RPM::Header::PurePerl can used as a drop in replacement for RPM::Header, if needed also the other way round.
The former name of this package was RPM::PerlOnly.
