       cvs-debc - view contents of a cvs-buildpackage/cvs-debuild generated package


       cvs-debc [options] [package ...]


       cvs-debc  is run from the CVS working directory after cvs-buildpackage or cvs-debuild.  It
       uses the cvs-buildpackage system to locate the .changes file generated in  that  run.   It
       then  displays  information  about  the  .deb  files  which were generated in that run, by
       running dpkg-deb -I and dpkg-deb -c on every .deb archive listed  in  the  .changes  file,
       assuming  that  all  of the .deb archives live in the same directory as the .changes file.
       It is useful for ensuring that the expected files have ended up in the Debian package.

       If a list of packages is given on the command line, then only those  debs  with  names  in
       this list of packages will be processed.

       Note that unlike cvs-buildpackage, the only way to specify the source package name is with
       the -P option; you cannot simply have it as the last command-line parameter.


       All current cvs-buildpackage options are silently accepted; however, only the ones  listed
       below  have  any  effect.   For  more  details on all of them, see the cvs-buildpackage(1)

       -adebian-architecture, -tGNU-system-type
              See dpkg-architecture(1) for a description  of  these  options.   They  affect  the
              search  for  the  .changes file.  They are provided to mimic the behaviour of dpkg-
              buildpackage when determining the name of the .changes file.

              The name of the CVS module.

              The name of the package.

              The version number of the package.

       -Ttag  The CVS tag to use for exporting sources.

       -Rroot directory
              Root of the original sources archive.

       -Wwork directory
              The full path name for the cvs-buildpackage working directory.

              This option provides the CVS default module prefix.

       --help, --version
              Show help message and version information respectively.
