       Dpkg::Conf - parse dpkg configuration files


       The Dpkg::Conf object can be used to read options from a configuration
       file. It can exports an array that can then be parsed exactly like


       my $conf = Dpkg::Conf->new(%opts)
           Create a new Dpkg::Conf object. Some options can be set through
           %opts: if allow_short evaluates to true (it defaults to false),
           then short options are allowed in the configuration file, they
           should be prepended with a single dash.

       @options = $conf->get_options()
           Returns the list of options that can be parsed like @ARGV.

           Read options from a file. Return the number of options parsed.

           Parse options from a file handle. Return the number of options

       $conf->filter(remove => $rmfunc)
       $conf->filter(keep => $keepfunc)
           Filter the list of options, either removing or keeping all those
           that return true when &$rmfunc($option) or &keepfunc($option) is

       $string = $conf->output($fh)
           Write the options in the given filehandle (if defined) and return a
           string representation of the content (that would be) written.

           Return a string representation of the content.

           Save the options in a file.
