AptPkg::System - APT system abstraction class

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

use AptPkg::System;

DESCRIPTION

The AptPkg::System module provides an interface to APT’s system abstraction mechanism.

    AptPkg::System

The AptPkg::System package implements the APT pkgSystem class.

An instance of the AptPkg::System class appropriate for the particular back-end packaging system (deb, rpm, etc.) may be fetched using the system method from AptPkg::Config.

A global instance of the libapt-pkg _system instance is provided as $AptPkg::System::_system, and may be imported.

The following methods are implemented:
label Return the description of the packaging system, for example:



    Debian dpkg interface



for Debian systems.

lock Lock the packaging system.
unlock(QUIET) Unlock the packaging system, ignoring errors if QUIET is non-zero.
versioning Return an instance of the AptPkg::Version class for this system.
