NAME

       Lintian::Processable::Package -- An object that Lintian can process

SYNOPSIS

        use Lintian::Processable::Package;

        my $proc = Lintian::Processable::Package->new ('lintian_2.5.0_all.deb');
        my $pkg_name = $proc->pkg_name;
        my $pkg_version = $proc->pkg_version;
        # etc.

DESCRIPTION

       Instances of this perl class are objects that Lintian can process (e.g.  deb files).
       Multiple objects can then be combined into groups, which Lintian will process together.

CLASS METHODS

       new (FILE[, TYPE])
           Creates a processable from FILE.  If TYPE is given, the FILE is assumed to be that
           TYPE otherwise the type is determined by the file extension.

           TYPE is one of "binary" (.deb), "udeb" (.udeb), "source" (.dsc) or "changes"
           (.changes).
