SYNOPSIS

           my ($name, $type) = ('foobar_1.2_i386.changes', 'changes');
           my $collect = Lintian::Collect->new($name, $type);
           my $files = $collect->files;

           foreach my $file (keys %{$files}) {
               my $size = $files->{$file}{size};
               print "File $file has size $size\n";
           }

DESCRIPTION

       Lintian::Collect::Changes provides an interface to data for .changes files.  It implements
       data collection methods specific to .changes files.

CLASS METHODS

       new (PACKAGE)
           Creates a new Lintian::Collect::Changes object.  Currently, PACKAGE is ignored.
           Normally, this method should not be called directly, only via the Lintian::Collect
           constructor.

INSTANCE METHODS

       In addition to the instance methods listed below, all instance methods documented in the
       Lintian::Collect module are also available.

       files
           Returns a reference to a hash containing information about files listed in the
           .changes file.  Each hash may have the following keys:

           name
               Name of the file.

           size
               The size of the file in bytes.

           section
               The archive section to which the file belongs.

           priority
               The priority of the file.

           checksums
               A hash with the keys being checksum algorithms and the values themselves being
               hashes containing

               sum The result of applying the given algorithm to the file.

               filesize
                   The size of the file as given in the .changes section relating to the given
                   checksum.

           Needs-Info requirements for using files: "field ([FIELD[, DEFAULT]])" in
           Lintian::Collect

       repacked
           Returns true if the source package referenced in this changes file has been "repacked"
           and false otherwise. This is determined from the version name containing "dfsg" or
           similar.

           Needs-Info requirements for using repacked: Same as field
