NAME

RPM::Header::PurePerl - a perl only implementation of a RPM header reader.

VERSION

Version 1.0.2

SYNOPSIS

    use RPM::Header::PurePerl;
    tie my %rpm, "RPM::Header::PurePerl", "rpm-4.0-1-i586.rpm" 
        or die "Problem, could not open rpm";
    print $rpm{'NAME'};

DESCRIPTION

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.

NOTES

The former name of this package was RPM::PerlOnly.
