NAME

       erlang-depends - calculates Erlang dependencies

SYNOPSIS

       erlang-depends [debhelper options]

DESCRIPTION

       erlang-depends is a debhelper-like program that is responsible for generating the
       substitution variables for Erlang-dependent packages.

       The most useful variable is ${erlang:Depends}. It expands into the list of Erlang packages
       which modules are used in the building package. It was introduced in version
       1:13.b.1-dfsg-3 of erlang-dev package.

       Also, ${erlang-abi:Depends} substitution adds current erlang ABI virtual package to
       substvar files. It is useful if your package uses C-based extensions which may break in
       case of ABI changes. It was introduced in version 1:11.b.4-4 of erlang-dev package.

       If you want to fine tune your package dependencies then you may want to use substvars for
       all Erlang packages you need. Currently they are: ${erlang-base:Depends},
       ${erlang-dev:Depends}, ${erlang-appmon:Depends}, ${erlang-asn1:Depends}, ${erlang-common-
       test:Depends}, ${erlang-corba:Depends}, ${erlang-crypto:Depends},
       ${erlang-debugger:Depends}, ${erlang-dialyzer:Depends}, ${erlang-edoc:Depends},
       ${erlang-eldap:Depends}, ${erlang-et:Depends}, ${erlang-eunit:Depends},
       ${erlang-gs:Depends}, ${erlang-ic:Depends}, ${erlang-inets:Depends},
       ${erlang-megaco:Depends}, ${erlang-mnesia:Depends}, ${erlang-observer:Depends},
       ${erlang-odbc:Depends}, ${erlang-os-mon:Depends}, ${erlang-parsetools:Depends},
       ${erlang-percept:Depends}, ${erlang-pman:Depends}, ${erlang-public-key:Depends},
       ${erlang-reltool:Depends}, ${erlang-runtime-tools:Depends}, ${erlang-snmp:Depends},
       ${erlang-ssh:Depends}, ${erlang-ssl:Depends}, ${erlang-syntax-tools:Depends},
       ${erlang-test-server:Depends}, ${erlang-toolbar:Depends}, ${erlang-tools:Depends},
       ${erlang-tv:Depends}, ${erlang-typer:Depends}, ${erlang-webtool:Depends},
       ${erlang-wx:Depends}, ${erlang-xmerl:Depends}.

       All variables except ${erlang-eldap:Depends}, ${erlang-base:Depends} and
       ${erlang-dev:Depends} were introduced in version 1:13.b-dfsg-2 of erlang-dev package.

       Variable ${erlang-eldap:Depends} was added in version 1:15.b.1-dfsg-1 of erlang-dev
       package because the new eldap application was included to the Erlang distribution.

       Variable ${erlang-docbuilder:Depends} was dropped in version 1:15.b-dfsg-1 of erlang-dev
       package because the docbuilder application was removed from the Erlang distribution.

       Variable ${erlang-inviso:Depends} was dropped in version 1:16.b.1-dfsg-4 of erlang-dev
       package because the inviso application was removed from the Erlang distribution.

       For compatibility with older versions the variables ${erlang-nox:Depends} and
       ${erlang-x11:Depends} also works (even since the corresponding packages turned into dummy
       packages).

       If you use this program, your package must build-depend on erlang-dev (>= 1:13.b-dfsg-2).
       If you want your package to use automatic calculation of dependencies then it must build-
       depend on erlang-dev (>= 1:13.b.1-dfsg-3).

OPTIONS

       -v, --verbose
           Verbose mode.

       -a, --arch
           Act on all architecture dependent packages.

       -i, --indep
           Act on all architecture independent packages.

       -ppackage, --package=package
           Act on the package named "package". This option may be specified multiple times.

       -Npackage, --no-package=package
           Do not act on the specified package even if an -a, -i, or -p option lists the package
           as one that should be acted on.

       --ignore=file
           Ignore the specified file.

       -Ptmpdir, --tmpdir=tmpdir
           Use "tmpdir" for package build directory. The default is debian/<package>
