NAME

       Dpkg::Arch - handle architectures

DESCRIPTION

       The Dpkg::Arch module provides functions to handle Debian architectures, wildcards, and
       mapping from and to GNU triplets.

       No symbols are exported by default. The :all tag can be used to import all symbols. The
       :getters, :parsers, :mappers and :operators tags can be used to import specific symbol
       subsets.

FUNCTIONS

       $arch = get_raw_build_arch()
           Get the raw build Debian architecture, without taking into account variables from the
           environment.

       $arch = get_build_arch()
           Get the build Debian architecture, using DEB_BUILD_ARCH from the environment if
           available.

       $arch = get_raw_host_arch()
           Get the raw host Debian architecture, without taking into account variables from the
           environment.

       $arch = get_host_arch()
           Get the host Debian architecture, using DEB_HOST_ARCH from the environment if
           available.

       @arch_list = get_valid_arches()
           Get an array with all currently known Debian architectures.

       $multiarch = gnutriplet_to_multiarch($gnutriplet)
           Map a GNU triplet into a Debian multiarch triplet.

       $multiarch = debarch_to_multiarch($arch)
           Map a Debian architecture into a Debian multiarch triplet.

       $gnutriplet = debarch_to_gnutriplet($arch)
           Map a Debian architecture into a GNU triplet.

       $arch = gnutriplet_to_debarch($gnutriplet)
           Map a GNU triplet into a Debian architecture.

       $bool = debarch_eq($arch_a, $arch_b)
           Evaluate the equality of a Debian architecture, by comparing with another Debian
           architecture. No wildcard matching is performed.

       $bool = debarch_is($arch, $arch_wildcard)
           Evaluate the identity of a Debian architecture, by matching with an architecture
           wildcard.

       $bool = debarch_is_wildcard($arch)
           Evaluate whether a Debian architecture is an architecture wildcard.

       $bool = debarch_is_illegal($arch, %options)
           Validate an architecture name.

           If the "positive" option is set to a true value, only positive architectures will be
           accepted, otherwise negated architectures are allowed.

       $bool = debarch_is_concerned($arch, @arches)
           Evaluate whether a Debian architecture applies to the list of architecture
           restrictions, as usually found in dependencies inside square brackets.

       @array = debarch_list_parse($arch_list, %options)
           Parse an architecture list.

           If the "positive" option is set to a true value, only positive architectures will be
           accepted, otherwise negated architectures are allowed.
