NAME

Debian::AptContents - parse/search through apt-file's Contents files

SYNOPSIS

    my $c = Debian::AptContents->new( { homedir => '~/.dh-make-perl' } );
    my @pkgs = $c->find_file_packages('/usr/bin/foo');
    my $dep = $c->find_perl_module_package('Foo::Bar');

TODO

This needs to really work not only for Perl modules.

A module specific to Perl modules is needed by dh-make-perl, but it can subclass Debian::AptContents, which needs to become more generic.

CONSTRUCTOR

new

Constructs new instance of the class. Expects at least homedir option.

FIELDS

homedir

(mandatory) Directory where the object stores its cache.

contents_dir

Directory where apt-file stores Contents files are stored. Default is /var/cache/apt/apt-file

sources

A path to a sources.list file or an array ref of paths to sources.list files. If not given uses AptPkg's Config to get the list.

dist

Used for filtering on the distributon part of the repository paths listed in sources.list. Default is empty, meaning no filtering.

contents_files

Arrayref of Contents file names. Default is to parse the files in sources and to look in contents_dir for matching files.

cache_file

Path to the file with cached parsed information from all Contents files. Default is Contents.cache under homedir.

cache

Filled by read_cache. Used by find_file_packages and (obviously) store_cache

verbose

Verbosity level. 0 means silent, the bigger the more the jabber. Default is 1.

OBJECT METHODS

warning

Used internally. Given a verbosity level and a message, prints the message to STDERR if the verbosity level is greater than or equal of the value of verbose.

repo_source_to_contents_paths

Given a line with Debian package repository path (typically taken from sources.list), converts it to the corresponding Contents file names.

get_contents_files

Reads sources.list, gives the repository paths to repo_source_to_contents_paths and returns an arrayref of file names of Contents files.

read_cache

Reads the cached parsed Contents files. If there are Contents files with more recent mtime than that of the cache (or if there is no cache at all), parses all Contents and stores the cache via store_cache for later invocation.

store_cache

Writes the contents of the parsed cache to the cache_file.

Storable is used to stream the data. Along with the information from Contents files, a time stamp is stored.

find_file_packages

Returns a list of packages where the given file was found.

Contents files store the package section together with package name. That is stripped.

Returns an empty list of the file is not found in any package.

find_perl_module_package( $module, $version )

Given Perl module name (e.g. Foo::Bar), returns a Debian::Dependency object representing the required Debian package and version. If the module is a core one, suitable dependency on perl is returned.

If the package is also available in a separate package, an alternative dependency is returned.

In case the version of the currently running Perl interpreter is lower than the version in which the wanted module is available in core, the separate package is preferred. Otherwise the perl dependency is the first alternative.
