Alien::Package::Slp - an object that represents a slp package
This is an object class that represents a slp package. It is derived from Alien::Package.
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.
compresstype Holds the compression type used in the slp file. slpkgversion Holds the slp package format version of the slp file.
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.
