NAME
       Parse::DebianChangelog::Util - utility functions for parsing Debian
       changelogs

DESCRIPTION
       This is currently only used internally by Parse::DebianChangelog.
       There may be still API changes until this module is finalized.

       Functions

       find_closes

       Takes one string as argument and finds "Closes: #123456, #654321"
       statements as supported by the Debian Archive software in it. Returns
       all closed bug numbers in an array reference.

       data2rfc822

       Takes two hash references as arguments. The first should contain the
       data to output in RFC822 format. The second can contain a sorting order
       for the fields. The higher the numerical value of the hash value, the
       earlier the field is printed if it exists.

       Return the data in RFC822 format as string.

       data2rfc822_mult

       The first argument should be an array ref to an array of hash refer-
       ences.  The second argument is a hash reference and has the same mean-
       ing as the second argument of data2rfc822.

       Calls data2rfc822 for each element of the array given as first argument
       and returns the concatenated results.

       get_dpkg_changes

       Takes a Parse::DebianChangelog::Entry object as first argument.

       Returns a string that is suitable for using it in a "Changes" field in
       the output format of "dpkg-parsechangelog".
