This module is used to represent a Section in a Java Manifest.
A constant denoting the main section of the manifest.
Exported by default.
Creates a new section - if $name is MAIN_SECTION, then it will set
``Manifest-Version'' otherwise it will set ``Name'' to $name.
Generally you should not need to use this directly! The
Debian::Javahelper::Manifest will create sections as they
are needed. There is no support for creating a section and then adding
it to a manifest after wards.
Sets the value of $attr to $value. If $attr did not exist in
this section then it will be created. $value may not contain
Note: $attr exists if an attribute matches $attr ignoring the
case of the two. When $attr is created, the original case will be
stored for later (for writing). Later updates to $attr will not
affect the original case.
Returns the value of $attr, long values are merged into a single
line. $attr is looked up case-insensitively.
Returns undef if $attr is not present in the section, unless
$empty is a truth-value. In this case it will return ''.
Returns all the values in the section in a list of [$attr, $value]
pairs. ``Manifest-Version'' and ``Name'' will appear first in this list if
they appear in this section, the remaining attributes appears in any
order and this order may change.
Modifying the list or the pairs will not affect the attributes in
Note: The $attr part will be the original case of the attribute.
