       ceve - parse package metadata


       ceve   [-output-type  output-type]  [-output-file  output-file]  [-input-type  input-type]
       [-extract-cone package=version] [-cone-dep-types code-dependency-types]  [-stop-extraction
       package=version]   [-dose-date   yyyy-mm-dd]   [-dose-archive   archive-name]   [-resolve-
       dependencies] [-rpm-versions] [-debian-versions] [-verbose] [-help]  files  [-ignore-file-
       deps file]


       Ceve  is  a generalized metadata parser. It reads package specifications, extracts package
       metadata from them, performs some manipulations, and outputs the package metadata  in  one
       of several formats.


       -cone-dep-types list
              A   comma-separated  list  of  dependency  types  to  use  for  dependency  closure
              generation. By default, all dependency types are used. Possible values are:

              ·   conflicts

              ·   depends

              ·   enhances

              ·   predepends

              ·   recommends

              ·   replaces

              ·   suggests

              Force usage of the Debian version numbering scheme, as well as  the  Debian  syntax
              for virtual packages (dependencies with a version specification cannot be satisfied
              by a virtual package).

       -dose-architecture architecture
              Use architecture as the default Dose architecture.

       -dose-archive archive
              Use archive as the default Dose archive name.

       -dose-date date
              Set date as the lifetime for the packages to add to a Dose database.

       -extract-cone package
              Only  output  the  package  package  and  its  dependency  closure.   The   package
              specification  can  be  either a package name, or a package name and version in the
              form name=version.  This option can be abbreviated as -x.

       -help  Not particularly useful, given that you're already reading this manpage.

       -input-type input-type
              The input type. Possible values are:

              ·   debian One Debian package (.deb)

              ·   debian-pool A Debian pool or cache file

              ·   rpm One RPM package

              ·   hdlist An uncompressed RPM hdlist file

              ·   pkgsrc A pkgsrc pkg_summary file

              ·   egraph A n EGraph file (GraphML-based)

              ·   synthesis-hdlist An RPM synthesis hdlist (uncompressed)
       This option can be abbreviated as -p.

       -output-dir directory
              Set the directory to output to. This is only useful  when  using  the  dose  output

       -output-file file
              Set the file to output to. This option can be abbreviated as -o.

       -output-type output-type
              Set the type of output to produce. Possible values are:

              ·   prettyprint Pretty printer.

              ·   egraph EGraph format (GraphML-based)

              ·   dose  Dose  database  format  (use  the  -output-dir  option  to  specify which
                  directory to write to)

              ·   oz Oz data structure

              ·   graphviz GraphVIZ graph

              ·   tart or cnf CNF formula, readable by Tart
       This option can be abbreviated as -t.

              If specified, resolve dependencies so that a dependency on  a  virtual  package  is
              replaced by the disjunction of all packages that provide the virtual package.

              Force  usage  of the RPM version numbering scheme, as well as the RPM semantics for
              virtual packages (all provides have versions). This is default when using  the  rpm
              or hdlist input types.

       -stop-extraction package
              When  computing  the  dependency closure, stop at package package (i.e. do not take
              its dependencies into account). Specification is the same as for the  -extract-cone

              Be verbose (mostly useful for debugging).

       -ignore-file-deps file
              file  should countain a list of file dependencies that are assumed to be available,
              and thus will not generate a warning during dependency resolution if  not  provided
              by any package.
