dose-ceve - parse package metadata

NAME

dose-ceve - parse package metadata

SYNOPSIS

dose-ceve [-h] [-v] [-c pkgspec] [-r pkgspec] [--depth= n] [-T format] [-G graph type] [-o filename] input-spec [input-spec...]

DESCRIPTION

Dose-ceve is a generalized metadata parser. It reads package specifications, extracts package metadata from them, performs some manipulations, and outputs the package metadata in one of several formats.
input-spec is a url specifying the input format and the file to get the input from. For a possible list of schemes, see the -t parameter.
Some examples of URLs:
.
deb://Packages.gz (the Debian file packages.gz in the current directory)
.
cudf:///home/examples/cudf/test.cudf (the CUDF file /home/examples/cudf/test.cudf)

OPTIONS

MISC OPTIONS

-h, --help
This option displays the help message.
-v, --verbose
Be verbose. This option can be repeated for more verbosity.
--version
Show program's version and exit.
--progress
Print progress bars.
--timers
Print timing information.
--quiet
Do no print any messages.

INPUT OPTIONS

Dose3 accepts files compressed with gzip(1) or bzip2(1), depending on compile-time options.
-t input-spec
Select the input type. Possible values are:
.
cudf Cudf file format
.
pef PEF file format. The PEF format (Package Exchange Format) is a generic 822 file format used to encode package dependencies. deb, opam, debsrc and edsp are all based on the pef format
.
csw OpenCSW Solaris packages binary format
.
opam Opam Package universe in Opam/PEF format. This format is a 822 textual format encoding the opam universe.
.
deb for Debian binary package files, also known as Packages files.
.
debsrc for Debian source package files, also knows as Sources files.
.
edsp apt-get External Dependency Solver Protocol
.
hdlist RPM hdlists. Binary file format.
.
synthesis urpmi synthesis hdlists. XML Based format
--trim
Consider only installable packages.
--latest n
Consider only the latest -n most recent versions of each package, older versions of packages are ignored.
-c, --cone=vpkglist
The match of an atomic dependency (a package name p possibly together with a version constraint c) is the set of all packages in the repository with name p, and a version that satisfies the constraint c. The dependency cone of a package p is the set of all matches of all atomic dependencies of p, together with their respective dependency cones. The package specification pkgspec is a list of packages (separated by a semicolon), where each package is specified as follows: ( name, version).
 
This option extracts the union of the dependency cones of all packages selected by vpkglist.
 
Example: =over 12
-c 'golang-golang-x-tools (= 1:0.0~git20150716.0.87156cb+dfsg1-4),golang-golang-x-tools-dev'
-r, --rcone=vpkglist
Using the same syntax as in -c, this option use the reverse dependency relation to make the transitive closure.
--depth n
In combination with the -c or -r options, this specifies the maximum depth for the transitive closure.
--request installation-request
Specifies an installation request of the form "install: vpkglist" or " remove: vpkglist" or " upgrade: vpkglist" where vpkglist is a list of (real) packages possibly associated with a constraint. Ex.: bash (< 2.0), exim (= 3.1-debian1). This option can be repeated to specify install, remove and upgrade actions.
 
Examples:
--request "install: bash (< 2.0), exim (= 3.1-debian1)" --request "upgrade: apt-cudf"

OUTPUT OPTIONS

-o, --outfile=filename
Instead of stdout, send output to the file filename.
-d, --outdir=directory
Set the output directory (default current directory)
--dot
Save the explanation graph (one for each package) in dot format.
-G graph type
Specifies the graph type format to compute. This option must be used together with the option -T dot|gml|grml. Default is syn. Possible values are:
.
syn for the syntactic graph where disjunctions nodes and conflicts are explicitly added to the graph.
.
pkg for the package graph where all dependencies are threated uniformely and conflicts are not added to the graph.
.
strdeps the strong dependency graph. A package p strong depends on q iff p cannot be installed if q is not installed.
.
strcnf
.
conj the conjunctive graph where only conjunctive dependencies are considered.
.
dom
-T format
Specifies the output format to use. Default is cnf. Possible values are:
.
cnf output in CNF format.
.
dimacs output in DIMACS format for CNF formulae.
.
cudf pretty-printed output in an RFC 822-like format
.
deb binary packages in deb822 format.
.
debsrc source packages in deb822 format.
.
dot a graph in Dot/GraphViz format.
.
gml a graph in GML format.
.
grml a graph in GraphML format.
.
table plain text output of three integer values: the universe size, the number of edges in the dependency graph, the number of conflicts in the universe.

DEBIAN SPECIFIC OPTIONS

Multi-arch annotations are handled by dose-ceve. Packages whose's architecture is neither the native architecture nor in the list of foreign architectures (see below) are ignored.
--deb-native-arch=name
Specify the native architecture. The default behavior is to deduce the native architecture from the first package stanza in the input that has an architecture different from all.
--deb-foreign-archs=name [,name] ...
Specify a comma-separated list of foreign architectures. The default is an empty list of foreign architectures.
--deb-ignore-essential
By default all essential package are considered as a dependency of all packages in the universe. This option allows the user to ignore essential packages.
--deb-host-arch=name
Native/cross compile host architecture, defaults to native architecture.
--deb-builds-from
Add builds-from relationship of binary packages on source packages as dependency. This allows one to create graphs for bootstrapping purposes.
-P, --deb-profiles=name[,name...]
Comma separated list of activated build profiles.
--deb-drop-b-d-indep
Drop Build-Depends-Indep dependencies from Debian source packages.
--deb-drop-b-d-arch
Drop Build-Depends-Arch dependencies from Debian source packages.

EXAMPLES

Find all the reverse binary dependencies of the package patchutils:
        dose-ceve --deb-native-arch amd64 -r patchutils -T deb \
                deb:///var/lib/apt/lists/*_dists_sid_main_binary-amd64_Packages \
                | grep-dctrl -n -s Package '' | sort -u
Find all the source packages that (directly or indirectly) build depend on patchutils:
        dose-ceve -T debsrc --deb-native-arch=amd64 -r patchutils \
                debsrc:///var/lib/apt/lists/*_dists_sid_main_source_Sources \
                deb:///var/lib/apt/lists/*_dists_sid_main_binary-amd64_Packages \
                | grep-dctrl -n -s Package '' | sort -u
Find the source packages (-T debsrc) that have in a relation builds-from with all the binary package in the reverse dependency cone of libssl-dev (a specific version constraint).
