    SYNOPSIS

           dpkg-scansources [option...] binary-dir [override-file [path-prefix]] >
           Sources
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           dpkg-scansources scans the given binary-dir for .dsc files.  These  are
           used to create a Debian source index, which is output to stdout.
    
           The override-file, if given, is used to set priorities in the resulting
           index records and to override the maintainer field given  in  the  .dsc
           files.  The  file can be compressed. See deb-override(5) for the format
           of this file. NB:  Since the override file is indexed  by  binary,  not
           source,  packages,  there's a bit of a problem here. The current imple-
           mentation uses the highest priority of all the binary packages produced
           by a .dsc file for the priority of the source package, and the override
           entry for the first binary package listed in the .dsc  file  to  modify
           maintainer information. This might change.
    
           The  path-prefix,  if given, is prepended to the directory field in the
           generated source index. You generally use this to  make  the  directory
           fields contain the path from the top of the Debian archive hierarchy.
    
           Note:  If you want to access the generated Sources file with apt(8) you
           will probably need to compress the  file  with  gzip(1)  (generating  a
           Sources.gz  file).  apt  ignores  uncompressed  Sources files except on
           local access (i.e.  file:// sources).
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -n, --no-sort
               Don't sort the index records. Normally they are  sorted  by  source
               package name.
    
           -e, --extra-override file
               Scan  file  to find supplementary overrides (the file can be
               compressed). See deb-extra-override(5) for more  information
               on its format.
    
           -s, --source-override file
               Use  file  as the source override file (the file can be com-
               pressed).  The default is the name of the override file  you
               specified with .src appended.
    
               The  source  override file is in a different format from the
               binary override file. It contains only two whitespace  sepa-
               rated  fields,  the first is the source package name and the
               second is the section. Blank lines  and  comment  lines  are
               ignored  in  the normal manner. If a package appears in both
               files the source override takes precedence for  setting  the
               section.
    
           --debug
