NAME¶Lintian::Info::Control::Index - access to collected control file data
use Lintian::Processable; my $processable = Lintian::Processable::Binary->new;
DESCRIPTION¶Lintian::Info::Control::Index provides an interface to control file data.
- An index object for binary control files.
- Returns the index for a binary control file.
- control_index (FILE)
- Returns a path object to FILE in the control.tar.gz. FILE must be relative
to the root of the control.tar.gz and must be without leading slash (or
"./"). If FILE is not in the control.tar.gz, it returns
To get a list of entries in the control.tar.gz, see "sorted_control_index". To actually access the underlying file (e.g. the contents), use "control ([FILE])".
Note that the "root directory" (denoted by the empty string) will always be present, even if the underlying tarball omits it.
Needs-Info requirements for using control_index: bin-pkg-control
- Returns a sorted array of file names listed in the control.tar.gz. The
names will not have a leading slash (or "./") and can be passed
to "control ([FILE])" or "control_index (FILE)" as is.
The array will not contain the entry for the "root" of the control.tar.gz.
Needs-Info requirements for using sorted_control_index: Same as control_index
- Resolve PATH (relative to the root of the package) and return the entry
denoting the resolved path.
The resolution is done using resolve_path.
Needs-Info requirements for using control_index_resolved_path: Same as control_index
