NAME

       Debian::Control::Stanza::CommaSeparated - comma separated debian/control field abstraction

SYNOPSIS

           my $f = Debian::Control::Stanza::CommaSeparated->new(
               'Joe M <joem@there.not>');
           $f->add('"Smith, Agent" <asmith@hasyou.not>, Joe M <joem@there.not>');
           print $f->as_string;
               # 'Joe M <joem@there.not>, "Smith, Agent" <asmith@hasyou.not>'
           print "$f";     # the same
           $f->sort;

DESCRIPTION

       Debian::Control::Stanza::CommaSeparated abstracts handling of comma-separated list of
       values, often found in debian/control file fields like Uploaders.  Note that the various
       dependency fields in debian/control also use comma-separated values, but the
       Debian::Dependencies class is more suitable for these as it is for example also capable of
       finding overlapping dependency declarations.

CONSTRUCTOR

       new (initial values)
           The initial values list is parsed and may contain strings that are in fact comma-
           separated lists. These are split appropriately using Text::ParseWords' quotewords
           routine.

METHODS

       as_string
           Returns text representation of the list. A simple join of the elements by ", ".

           The same function is used for overloading the stringification operation.

       add @items
           Adds the given items to the list. Items that are already present are not added,
           keeping the list unique.

       sort
           A handy method for sorting the list.
