NAME
       AptPkg::PkgRecords - APT package description class

SYNOPSIS
       use AptPkg::PkgRecords;

DESCRIPTION
       The AptPkg::PkgRecords module provides an interface to the parsed
       contents of package files.

       AptPkg::PkgRecords

       The AptPkg::PkgRecords package Implements the APT pkgRecords class.

       An instance of the AptPkg::PkgRecords class may be fetched using the
       "packages" method from an AptPkg::Cache object.

       Methods

       lookup(PACK)
           Return a hash (or hash reference, depending on context) for the
           given package.

           PACK may either be an AptPkg::Cache::VerFile object, or a package
           name.

           The hash contains the following keys:

               "FileName", "MD5Hash", "SourcePkg", "Maintainer", "ShortDesc",
               "LongDesc" and "Name".

           with values taken from the packages file.  If PACK is a package
           name, these additional values are set:

               "Section" and "VerStr".

       AptPkg::Cache(3pm), AptPkg(3pm).
