Perl-RPM - Native bindings to the RPM Package Manager API for Perl Version 1.51 WHAT IS IT The Perl-RPM package is an attempt to provide Perl-level access to the complete application programming interface that is a part of the RPM Package Manager (RPM). Rather than have scripts rely on executing RPM commands and parse the resultant output, this modules aims to provide Perl programmers the ability to do anything that would otherwise have been done in C or C++. The interface is being designed and laid out as a collection of classes, at least some of which are also available as tied-hash implementations. At this time, the interface only provides access to the database of installed packages, and header data retrieval for RPM and SRPM files not yet installed. Error management and the export of most defined constants, through RPM::Error and RPM::Constants respectively, is also available. BUILDING/INSTALLING This package is set up to configure and build like a typical Perl extension. To build: perl Makefile.PL make && make test If the RPM package passes all tests, then: make install You may need super-user access to install. PROBLEMS/BUG REPORTS Please send any reports of problems or bugs to email@example.com. MAILING LIST There is now a mailing list for Perl-RPM.
