Changes for version 1.50

  • This is an official release to make the work done by Alexey Tourbin (<at@altlinux.org>) available in the main branch. All of his changes are merged into the main repository. Without his work, the project would still be languishing. Beside fixing countless bugs, he got me back to actively looking at the code.
  • Added LICENSE paramter in Makefile.PL to re-license the package under the same terms as Perl itself (dual Artistic/GPL).
  • RPM.pm version bumped up to 1.50 for release tracking.
  • Test suites added to t/ for POD correctness and POD coverage.
  • Several new additions to POD as deficiencies found by the POD coverage testing.


  • RPM::Constants - Groups of RPM-defined symbols
  • RPM::Database - Access to the RPM database of installed packages
  • RPM::Error - Functions to supplement the internal error management of RPM
  • RPM::Header - Access to RPM package headers
  • rpmprune - Remove unneeded files from a list of RPM package files


  • RPM - Perl interface to the API for the RPM Package Manager
