Debian::Control::Stanza::CommaSeparated - comma separated debian/control field abstraction
my $f = Debian::Control::Stanza::CommaSeparated->new( 'Joe M <email@example.com>'); $f->add('"Smith, Agent" <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Joe M <email@example.com>'); print $f->as_string; # 'Joe M <firstname.lastname@example.org>, "Smith, Agent" <email@example.com>' print "$f"; # the same $f->sort;
Debian::Control::Stanza::CommaSeparated abstracts handling of comma-separated list of values, often found in debian/control file fields like Uploaders. Note that the various dependency fields in debian/control also use comma-separated values, but the Debian::Dependencies class is more suitable for these as it is for example also capable of finding overlapping dependency declarations.
- new (initial values)
- The initial values list is parsed and may contain strings that are in fact comma-separated lists. These are split appropriately using Text::ParseWords' quotewords routine.
- Returns text representation of the list. A simple join of the elements by
The same function is used for overloading the stringification operation.
- add @items
- Adds the given items to the list. Items that are already present are not added, keeping the list unique.
- A handy method for sorting the list.
