       Debian::Package::HTML - Generates a webpage information (and Linda/Lintian checks) about a
       Debian binary or source package using HTML::Template


         use strict;
         use Debian::Package::HTML;
         my $package = Debian::Package::HTML->new(%packageHash);






       This module outputs a webpage using HTML::Template templates which resumes the information
       of a normal build environment for a package in Debian (source files, binary packages and
       changelogs) using Linda/Lintian for sanity checks. It is useful for making unified
       presentation webpages for those packages which are being sponsorized by someone in Debian.


       ·   $object->new(%packageHash)

           Constructs an $object with all information concerning the package, including location
           for binary/source files, changelogs, diffs, pristine sources, as well as templates,
           charsets and other settings.

           Possible elements for the hash are:

           "binary", "control", "source", "diff", "changes", each one of them specifying one of
           the five possible files generated by a package building process in Debian.

           "control" is mandatory.

       ·   $object->output(%contextHash)

           Does the actual XHTML output. Possible elements for the hash are:

           "briefing" (boolean): if TRUE, WebInfo will look for a briefing.html in the current
           directory, and will include the content in the resulting output. Useful for
           introducing commentaries without touching the final HTML. Defaults to FALSE.

           "charset": determines the output charset. Defaults to "ISO-8859-1".

           "resultTemplate": specifies the location of an HTML::Template style template for
           output. This is mandatory, and defaults to "result.tmpl"

           "pageStyle": specifies the location of a CSS file which might be included.

           "doChecks" (boolean): if TRUE, WebInfo will run linda and lintian over the control
           file and will generate a ${packageName}-checks.txt file which will be included in the
           final output. Defaults to FALSE.

           "dump": determines where to put the resulting HTML output. Defaults to index.html


   No DSC could be found/open
       You need to specify a DSC control file using the "control" parameter for the new() method.
       If you don't, WebInfo can't do much. The package will inform if the file could not be
       FOUND or could not be OPEN.

       Please report the bugs, I'd love to work on them.


   Template customization
       You can customize the final output using your own HTML::Template template file and
       specifying it as a parameter for the output() method. The following template variable
       names are honored by WebInfo:

       packageName: the name of the package

       packageVersion: the version of the package

       maintainerName: the name of the maintainer

       maintainerMail: the e-mail address of the maintainer

       maintainerPlus: a "+" separated name/surname for the maintainer (useful for URL searching)

       pageCharset: the page charset (customizable in the output() method)

       pageStyle: the CSS file (customizable in the output() method)

       packagef: the available package files as an array reference, so HTML::Template should
       iterate over the "packagefile" variable.

       date: the date specified by the current locale

       doChecks: a boolean variable specifying if Linda/Lintian checks were made

       briefing: a boolean variable specifying if a briefing.html file should be included

   Example template
       An example template is in:

       HTML outputs with that template and no CSS look like:


   Only a control file

         use strict;
         use warnings;

         use Debian::Package::HTML;

         my $package = Debian::Package::HTML->new( "control" => "falselogin.dsc" );
         $package->output ( "resultTemplate" => "result.tmpl", "dump" => "index.html" );

   A complete building environment

         use strict;
         use warnings;

         use Debian::Package::HTML;

         my $package = Debian::Package::HTML->new("control" => "falselogin.dsc",
         "binary" => "falselogin.deb",
         "diff" => "falselogin.diff.gz",
         "source" => "falselogin.orig.tar.gz",
         "changes" => "falselogin.changes"

         $package -> output ( "resultTemplate" => "anotherTemplate.tmpl",
         "style" => "groovy-style.css",
         "charset" => "UTF-8",
         "doChecks" => "1",
         "dump" => "firstPackage.html"

   Some ideas
       Well, throw the files generated by your compilations (dpkg-buildpackage, i.e.)  in a
       /var/www/<my package> served by your webserver of choice and run a small program using
       Debian::Package::HTML and a nice CSS/Template. You will have a great webpage for all your
       Debian packages, really useful if you're not yet a Developer and need to handle several
       packages with your sponsors.
