NAME
       AptPkg::Policy - APT package version policy class

SYNOPSIS
       use AptPkg::Policy;

DESCRIPTION
       The AptPkg::Policy module provides an interface to APT's package
       version policy.

       AptPkg::Policy

       The AptPkg::Policy package implements the APT pkgPolicy class.

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

       The following methods are implemented:

       priority(PKG|FILE)
           Return the pin priority for the given PKG (AptPkg::Cache::Package)
           or FILE (AptPkg::Cache::PkgFile) object.

       match(PKG)
           Find the pinned version of PKG.  Returns an AptPkg::Cache::Version
           object.

       candidate(PKG)
           Returns the installation candidate version for PKG.
