NAME

ALPM::Package - libalpm packages of files, with dependencies, etc.

SYNOPSIS

  use ALPM::Conf qw(/etc/pacman.conf);
  my $perlpkg = $alpm->localdb->find('perl');

  ## All package methods are accessors.

  my $name = $perlpkg->name();
  print "$name rocks!\n";

  ## Here is an ugly trick. Please forgive me.
  print "@{[$perlpkg->name]} rocks!\n";

  ## Dependencies are arrayrefs of hashrefs (AoH):
  print "$name depends on:\n";
  for my $deps (@{$perlpkg->depends}){
      print "\t@{$dep}{'name', 'mod', 'version'}\n";
  }

  ## File lists are also arrayrefs of hashrefs (AoH):
  print "$name owns files:\n";
  for my $f (@{$perlpkg->files}){
      printf "\t%s %o %d\n", $f->{'name'}, $f->{'mode'}, $f->{'size'};
  }
  
  ## Others lists are arrayrefs of scalars:
  print "$name is licensed under: @{$perlpkg->licenses}";

DESCRIPTION

This class is a wrapper for all of the alpm_pkg_... C library functions of libalpm. You retrieve the package from the database and you can then access its information.

ACCESSORS

The accessors are named almost exactly the same as the alpm_pkg_get... functions. I have removed the get_ prefix on the accessors. This is because you can't really set anything so you should know it's a get anyways.

  • signature

Attributes with plural names return an arrayref of strings. depends and files return an arrayref of hashrefs. db returns an ALPM::DB object.

origin

This should be either "file", "localdb", or <"syncdb">. If this returns "unknown" something went wrong.

validation

This returns a string which can either be "unknown", "none" or one or more of the following seperated by spaces: "MD5", "SHA", or "PGP".

signature

Returns the package signature as a string encoded in Base64.
