           dpkg-parsechangelog [option...]


           dpkg-parsechangelog  reads  and  parses  the  changelog  of an unpacked
           Debian source tree and outputs the information in it to standard output
           in a machine-readable form.


                  Specifies  the  change  log  file  to read information from. The
                  default is debian/changelog.
                  Specifies the format of the changelog. By default the format  is
                  read  from  a  special  line near the bottom of the changelog or
                  failing that defaults to the debian standard format.
                  Specify an additional directory to search  for  parser  scripts.
                  This  directory is searched before the default directories which
                  are     currently     /usr/local/lib/dpkg/parsechangelog     and
           -h, --help
                  Show the usage message and exit.
                  Show the version and exit.
       Parser Options
           The  following  options  can  be  used  to  influence the output of the
           changelog parser, e.g. the range of entries or the format of  the  out-
           put.  They  need  to be supported by the parser script in question. See
           also CAVEATS.
           --format outputformat
                  Set the output format. Currently supported values are  dpkg  and
                  rfc822.   dpkg  is  the  classic output format (from before this
                  option existed) and the default. It consists of one paragraph in
                  Debian  control  format  (see  deb-control(5)). If more than one
                  entry is requested, then most fields are taken from  the  latest
                  entry, except otherwise stated:
                  Source: pkg-name
                  Version: version
                  Distribution: target-distribution
                  Urgency: urgency
                         The highest urgency of all included entries is used.
                  There might be additional user-defined fields present.
                  The  rfc822  format  uses the same fields but outputs a separate
                  paragraph for each changelog entry so that all metadata for each
                  entry is preserved.
           --since version, -sversion, -vversion
                  include all changes later than version.
           --until version, -uversion
                  include all changes earlier than version.
           --from version, -fversion
                  include all changes equal or later than version.
           --to version, -tversion
                  include all changes up to or equal than version.
           --count number, -cnumber, -nnumber
                  include  number  entries  from the top (or the tail if number is
                  lower than 0).
           --offset number, -onumber
                  change the starting point for --count, counted from the top  (or
                  the tail if number is lower than 0).
           --all  include  all  changes.  Note:  other options have no effect when
                  this is in use.


           All Parser Options except for -v are only supported  in  dpkg,  version
           1.14.16 and later. Third party parsers for changelog formats other than
           debian might not support all options.


                  The changelog file, used to obtain version-dependent information
                  about  the  source package, such as the urgency and distribution
                  of an upload, the changes made since a particular  release,  and
                  the source version number itself.
