NAME

       dcmd - expand file lists of .dsc/.changes files in the command line

SYNOPSIS

       dcmd [options] [command] [changes-file|dsc-file] [...]

DESCRIPTION

       dcmd  replaces  any reference to a .dsc or .changes file in the command line with the list
       of files in its 'Files' section, plus the file itself.  It allows easy manipulation of all
       the files involved in an upload (for changes files) or a source package (for dsc files).

       If  command  is omitted (that is the first argument is an existing .dsc or .changes file),
       the expanded list of files is printed to stdout, one file by line.  Useful  for  usage  in
       backticks.

OPTIONS

       There  are  a  number of options which may be used in order to select only a subset of the
       files listed in the .dsc or .changes file. If a requested file  is  not  found,  an  error
       message will be printed.

       --dsc         Select the .dsc file.

       --schanges    Select .changes files for the 'source' architecture.

       --bchanges    Select .changes files for binary architectures.

       --changes     Select .changes files. Implies --schanges and --bchanges.

       --archdeb     Select architecture-dependent binary packages (.deb files).

       --indepdeb    Select architecture-independent binary packages (.deb files).

       --deb         Select binary packages (.deb files). Implies --archdeb and --indepdeb.

       --archudeb    Select architecture-dependent udeb binary packages.

       --indepudeb   Select architecture-independent udeb binary packages.

       --udeb        Select udeb binary packages. Implies --archudeb and --indepudeb.

       --tar, --orig Select the tar file.

       --diff        Select the Debian diff file.

       Each  option  may  be  prefixed  by  --no  to  indicate  that  all  files not matching the
       specification should be selected.

       It is not possible to  combine  positive  filtering  options  (e.g.  --dsc)  and  negative
       filtering options (e.g. --no-changes) in the same dcmd invocation.

       --no-fail-on-missing, -r
              If any of the requested files were not found, do not output an error.

EXAMPLES

       Copy the result of a build to another machine:

       $ dcmd scp rcs_5.7-23_amd64.changes elegiac:/tmp
       rcs_5.7-23.dsc                  100%  490     0.5KB/s   00:00
       rcs_5.7-23.diff.gz              100%   12KB  11.7KB/s   00:00
       rcs_5.7-23_amd64.deb            100%  363KB 362.7KB/s   00:00
       rcs_5.7-23_amd64.changes        100% 1095     1.1KB/s   00:00
       $

       $ dcmd --diff --deb scp rcs_5.7-23_amd64.changes elegiac:/tmp
       rcs_5.7-23.diff.gz              100%   12KB  11.7KB/s   00:00
       rcs_5.7-23_amd64.deb            100%  363KB 362.7KB/s   00:00
       $

       Check the contents of a source package:

       $ dcmd md5sum rcs_5.7-23.dsc
       8fd09ea9654cda128f8d5c337d3b8de7  rcs_5.7.orig.tar.gz
       f0ceeae96603e823eacba6721a30b5c7  rcs_5.7-23.diff.gz
       5241db1e231b1f43ae5514b63d2523f8  rcs_5.7-23.dsc
       $

       $ dcmd --no-diff md5sum rcs_5.7-23.dsc
       8fd09ea9654cda128f8d5c337d3b8de7  rcs_5.7.orig.tar.gz
       5241db1e231b1f43ae5514b63d2523f8  rcs_5.7-23.dsc
       $
