NAME

Dpkg::Changelog::Debian - parse Debian changelogs  

DESCRIPTION

Dpkg::Changelog::Debian parses Debian changelogs as described in the Debian policy (version 3.6.2.1 at the time of this writing). See section ``SEE ALSO'' for locations where to find this definition.

The parser tries to ignore most cruft like # or /* */ style comments, CVS comments, vim variables, emacs local variables and stuff from older changelogs with other formats at the end of the file. NOTE: most of these are ignored silently currently, there is no parser error issued for them. This should become configurable in the future.  

METHODS

$c->parse($fh, $description)

Read the filehandle and parse a Debian changelog in it. Returns the number of changelog entries that have been parsed with success.
