       botch-add-arch - add architecture to source packages


       botch-add-arch [-h] [-v] toarch inSources outSources


       Add architecture toarch to the "Architecture" field of all source packages in inSources
       which have an "Architecture" field that does not match toarch yet. The system's
       "dpkg-architecture" program is used to determine whether any architecture of the source
       packages' "Architecture" field matches toarch.

       The files inSources and outSources are control files given in deb822 format like the ones
       found on archive mirrors and locally under /var/lib/apt/lists.

       inSources and outSources can point to the same file name for in-place operation.
       Compressed inSources files are decompressed on the fly independent of their filename
       extension. The output will be compressed as determined by the filename extension of

       If inSources is equal to a single hyphen-minus (-) then its content will be read from
       standard input. If outSources is equal to a single hyphen-minus (-) then the output will
       be written to standard output.


       -v, --verbose
           Be verbose.

       -h, --help
           Print help message.


       Make all source packages compilable on arm64:

        botch-add-arch arm64 inSources outSources
