Debian::Control::Stanza::Source can be used for representation and manipulation of "Source:" stanza of Debian source package control files in an object-oriented way. Converts itself to a textual representation in string context.


The supported fields for source stanzas are listed below. For more information about each field's meaning, consult the section named "Source package control files -- debian/control" of the Debian Policy Manual at <>

Note that real control fields may contain dashes in their names. These are replaced with underscores.

All Build_... fields are converted into objects of Debian::Dependencies class upon construction.


Creates a new Debian::Control::Stanza::Source object and optionally initializes it with the supplied data.


Debian::Control::Stanza::Source inherits most of its functionality from Debian::Control::Stanza
