dscextract - extract a single file from a Debian source package
] dscfile file
reads a single file from a Debian source package. The idea is
to only look into .diff.gz
files (source format 1.0) or
files (source format 3.0) where possible, hence
avoiding to unpack large tarballs. It is most useful for files in the
is relative to the first level directory contained in the package,
i.e. with the first component stripped.
- "Fast" mode. For source format 1.0, avoid to fall
back scanning the .orig.tar.gz file if file was not found in
the .diff.gz. (For 3.0 packages, it is assumed that debian/*
are exactly the contents of debian.tar.gz/bz2.)
- file was extracted.
- file was not found in the source package.
- An error occurred, like dscfile was not found.
