NAME

       debpatch - Applies a patch to recreate a debian package.

SYNOPSIS

       debpatch [OPTION]... DELTA FROMFILE TOFILE
       debpatch [OPTION]... DELTA / TOFILE
       debpatch --info PATCH

DESCRIPTION

       This  program  is  designed  to  apply  a patch (DELTA) to a Debian package (FROMFILE) and
       create the Debian package (TOFILE).  If the Debian package (FROMFILE) was installed in the
       host  system  and  the  .deb  file  is  not available, then the argument (FROMFILE) may be
       substituted by the keyword / : then debpatch will  get  the  needed  data  from  the  host
       filesystem.

OPTIONS

       --info PATCH
              Write info on PATCH

       --no-md5
              do not verify MD5 info.

       -v     verbose (can be added multiple times).

       -d     print  full traceback on Python errors; save useful info in temporary files in case
              that a delta fails.

       -k     keep temporary files (use for debugging).

       --format FORMAT
              format of recreated debs. FORMAT=deb is the usual, FORMAT=unzipped means  that  the
              data.tar part is not compressed, (and this may save some time)

       -A --accept-unsigned
              accept unsigned deltas.

       --gpg-home
              specify  a  different home for GnuPG, default for root is /etc/debdelta/gnupg while
              for other users is unset. See --homedir in gpg(1) for details.
