NAME

Alien::Package::Slp - an object that represents a slp package

DESCRIPTION

This is an object class that represents a slp package. It is derived from Alien::Package.

CLASS DATA

The following data is global to the class, and is used to describe the slp package format, which this class processes directly.
footer_size
Complete sizeof(slpformat) from slp.h in the stampede package manager source.
footer_packstring
This is the pack format string for the footer. (A=space terminated character, I=unsigned integer.)
footer_version
What package format are we up to now? (Lowest one this is still compatible with.)
archtrans
This is a translation table between architectures and the number that represents them in a slp package.
fieldlist
This is a list of all the fields in the order they appear in the footer.

FIELDS

compresstype
Holds the compression type used in the slp file.
slpkgversion
Holds the slp package format version of the slp file.

METHODS

checkfile
Detect slp files by their extension.
install
Install a slp. Pass in the filename of the slp to install.
getfooter
Pulls the footer out of the slp file and returns it.
scan
Implement the scan method to read a slp file.
unpack
Unpack a slp file. They can be compressed in various ways, depending on what is in the compresstype field.
build
Build a slp.
conffiles
Set/get conffiles.
 
When the conffiles are set, the format used by slp (a colon-delimited list) is turned into the real list that is used internally. The list is changed back into slp's internal format when it is retrieved.
copyright
Set/get copyright.
 
When the copyright is set, the number used by slp is changed into a textual description. This is changed back into a number when the value is retrieved.
arch
Set/get arch.
 
When the arch is set, the number used by slp is changed into a textual description. This is changed back into a number when the value is retrieved.
release
Set/get release version.
 
When the release version is retrieved, it is converted to an unsigned integer, as is required by the slp package format.
