dcmd


SYNOPSIS
       dcmd [options] [command] [changes-file|dsc-file] [...]

DESCRIPTION
       dcmd  replaces  any reference to a .dsc or .changes file in the command
       line with the list of files in  its  'Files'  section,  plus  the  file
       itself.   It  allows  easy manipulation of all the files involved in an
       upload (for changes files) or a source package (for dsc files).

       If command is omitted (that is the first argument is an  existing  .dsc
       or .changes file), the expanded list of files is printed to stdout, one
       file by line. Useful for usage in backticks.

OPTIONS
       There are a number of options which may be used in order to select only
       a  subset  of  the  files  listed  in  the  .dsc or .changes file. If a
       requested file is not found, an error message will be printed.

       --dsc         Select the .dsc file.

       --schanges    Select .changes files for the 'source' architecture.

       --bchanges    Select .changes files for binary architectures.

       --changes     Select .changes files. Implies --schanges and --bchanges.

       --archdeb     Select  architecture-dependent  binary   packages   (.deb
                     files).

       --indepdeb    Select  architecture-independent  binary  packages  (.deb
                     files).

       --deb         Select binary packages (.deb  files).  Implies  --archdeb
                     and --indepdeb.

       --archudeb    Select architecture-dependent udeb binary packages.

       --indepudeb   Select architecture-independent udeb binary packages.

       --udeb        Select  udeb  binary  packages.  Implies  --archudeb  and
                     --indepudeb.

       --tar, --orig Select the tar file.

       --diff        Select the Debian diff file.

       Each option may be prefixed by --no to  indicate  that  all  files  not
       matching the specification should be selected.

       It  is  not possible to combine positive filtering options (e.g. --dsc)
       and negative filtering options (e.g. --no-changes)  in  the  same  dcmd
       invocation.
