Dpkg::Conf - parse dpkg configuration files



The Dpkg::Conf object can be used to read options from a configuration file. It can exports an array that can then be parsed exactly like @ARGV.


my $conf = Dpkg::Conf->new(%opts) Create a new Dpkg::Conf object. Some options can be set through %opts: if allow_short evaluates to true (it defaults to false), then short options are allowed in the configuration file, they should be prepended with a single dash.
@options = $conf->get_options() Returns the list of options that can be parsed like @ARGV.
$conf->load($file) Read options from a file. Return the number of options parsed.
$conf->parse($fh) Parse options from a file handle. Return the number of options parsed.
$conf->filter(remove => $rmfunc)
$conf->filter(keep => $keepfunc) Filter the list of options, either removing or keeping all those that return true when &$rmfunc($option) or &keepfunc($option) is called.
$string = $conf->output($fh) Write the options in the given filehandle (if defined) and return a string representation of the content (that would be) written.
‘‘$conf’’ Return a string representation of the content.
$conf->save($file) Save the options in a file.
