NAME

       rpmspec - RPM Spec Tool

SYNOPSIS

   QUERYING SPEC FILES:
       rpmspec {-q|--query} [select-options] [query-options] SPEC_FILE ...

   PARSING SPEC FILES TO STDOUT:
       rpmspec {-P|--parse} SPEC_FILE ...

DESCRIPTION

       rpmspec  is  a  tool for querying a spec file. More specifically for querying hypothetical
       packages which would be created from the given spec file. So querying  a  spec  file  with
       rpmspec  is  similar  to  querying  a  package  built  from  that spec file. But is is not
       identical. With rpmspec you can't query all fields  which  you  can  query  from  a  built
       package. E. g. you can't query BUILDTIME with rpmspec for obvious reasons. You also cannot
       query other fields automatically generated during a build of a package like auto generated
       dependencies.

   select-options
        [--rpms]
        [--srpm]

   query-options
        [--qf,--queryformat QUERYFMT]
        [--target TARGET_PLATFORM]

   QUERY OPTIONS
       The general form of an rpm spec query command is

       rpm {-q|--query} [select-options] [query-options]

       You  may specify the format that the information should be printed in. To do this, you use
       the

        --qf|--queryformat QUERYFMT

       option, followed by the QUERYFMT format string.  See rpm(8) for details.

   SELECT OPTIONS
        --rpms Operate on the all binary package headers generated from spec.
        --builtrpms Operate only on the binary package headers of packages which would  be  built
       from  spec.  That means ignoring package headers of packages that won't be built from spec
       i. e. ignoring package headers of packages without file section.
        --srpm Operate on the source package header(s) generated from spec.

EXAMPLES

       Get list of binary packages which would be generated from the rpm spec file:

            $ rpmspec -q rpm.spec
            rpm-4.11.3-3.fc20.x86_64
            rpm-libs-4.11.3-3.fc20.x86_64
            rpm-build-libs-4.11.3-3.fc20.x86_64
            ...

       Get summary infos for single binary packages generated from the rpm spec file:

            $ rpmspec -q --qf "%{name}: %{summary}\n" rpm.spec
            rpm: The RPM package management system
            rpm-libs: Libraries for manipulating RPM packages
            rpm-build-libs: Libraries for building and signing RPM packages
            ...

       Get the source package which would be generated from the rpm spec file:

            $ rpmspec -q --srpm rpm.spec
            rpm-4.11.3-3.fc20.x86_64

       Parse the rpm spec file to stdout:

            $ rpmspec -P rpm.spec
            Summary: The RPM package management system
            Name: rpm
            Version: 4.14.0
            ...

       rpmspec --help - as rpm supports customizing the options via popt aliases it's  impossible
       to guarantee that what's described in the manual matches what's available.
