Dpkg::Deps::OR - list of OR dependencies


This class represents a list of dependencies of which only one must be met for the dependency to be true. It inherits from Dpkg::Deps::Multiple.



The output method uses " | " to join the list of sub-dependencies.


Returns 1 when $dep implies $other_dep. Returns 0 when $dep implies NOT($other_dep). Returns undef when there's no implication. $dep and $other_dep do not need to be of the same type.


Evaluates the dependency given a list of installed packages and a list of virtual packages provided. These lists are part of the Dpkg::Deps::KnownFacts object given as parameters.

Returns 1 when it's true, 0 when it's false, undef when some information is lacking to conclude.

$dep->simplify_deps($facts, @assumed_deps)

Simplifies the dependency as much as possible given the list of facts (see object Dpkg::Deps::KnownFacts) and a list of other dependencies that are known to be true.
