dscextract


SYNOPSIS
       dscextract [options] dscfile file

DESCRIPTION
       dscextract  reads a single file from a Debian source package.  The idea
       is  to  only  look  into  .diff.gz  files  (source   format   1.0)   or
       .debian.tar.gz/bz2  files  (source  format  3.0)  where possible, hence
       avoiding to unpack large tarballs.  It is most useful for files in  the
       debian/ subdirectory.

       file is relative to the first level directory contained in the package,
       i.e. with the first component stripped.

OPTIONS
       -f     "Fast" mode. For source format 1.0, avoid to fall back  scanning
              the  .orig.tar.gz  file  if  file was not found in the .diff.gz.
              (For 3.0 packages, it is assumed that debian/* are  exactly  the
              contents of debian.tar.gz/bz2.)

EXIT STATUS
       0      file was extracted.

       1      file was not found in the source package.

       2      An error occurred, like dscfile was not found.

EXAMPLE
       dscextract dds_2.1.1+ddd105-2.dsc debian/watch || test $? = 1
