    Command:

    dpkg-name

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           dpkg-name [option...]  [--] file...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This manual page documents the dpkg-name program which provides an easy
           way to rename Debian packages into their full  package  names.  A  full
           package  name  consists of package_version_architecture.package-type as
           specified in the control file of the package. The version part  of  the
           filename  consists  of the upstream version information optionally fol-
           lowed by a hyphen and the revision information. The  package-type  part
           comes from that field if present or fallbacks to deb.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -a, --no-architecture
                  The destination filename will not have the architecture informa-
                  tion.
    
           -k, --symlink
                  Create a symlink, instead of moving.
    
           -o, --overwrite
                  Existing files will be overwritten if they have the same name as
                  the destination filename.
    
           -s, --subdir [dir]
                  Files  will be moved into a subdirectory. If the directory given
                  as argument exists the files will be moved into  that  directory
                  otherwise the name of the target directory is extracted from the
                  section field in the control part of  the  package.  The  target
                  directory will be 'unstable/binary-architecture/section'. If the
                  section is not  found  in  the  control,  then  'no-section'  is
                  assumed,  and  in  this case, as well as for sections 'non-free'
                  and 'contrib' the target directory is  'section/binary-architec-
                  ture'.  The  section  field  isn't required so a lot of packages
                  will find their way to the 'no-section' area.  Use  this  option
                  with care, it's messy.
    
           -c, --create-dir
                  This  option  can  used together with the -s option. If a target
                  directory isn't found it will  be  created  automatically.   Use
                  this option with care.
    
           -h, --help
                  Show the usage message and exit.
    
           -v, --version
                  Show the version and exit.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

           dpkg-name bar-foo.deb
                  The file 'bar-foo.deb' will be renamed to bar-foo_1.0-2_i386.deb
                  or something similar (depending on whatever  information  is  in
    
    
    

    BUGS

           Some packages don't follow the name structure package_version_architec-
           ture.deb.  Packages renamed by dpkg-name will  follow  this  structure.
           Generally  this  will  have  no impact on how packages are installed by
           dselect(1)/dpkg(1), but other installation tools might depend  on  this
           naming structure.
