Thank you for many links on dh-make-perl whick you sent me privately, but for all that I mean another class of problems: 1. dh-make-perl For example we build with its help the package libwww-mechanize-perl. Excellent! The package is built. But it's not a package, its a template for package! i.e. If one tries to build it in pbuilder system, then the build will not be fulfilled successfully. Why does it happen? Because dh-make-perl left the field (Indep-)?Build-Depends empty. If there's created a unambiguous search of the package according to its name then it will be possible to introduce such an opportunity in dh-make-perl. 2. Thank you for many links on apt-cache search, but I mean rather another class of problems :) Start the command apt-cache --full search -- -perl|less and see hoe many packages haven't the modules' names in description. Thereafter there exists the complexity of search, for example one can't find libio-compress-zlib-perl according to modules' names IO::Uncompress::Gunzip, IO::Uncompress::Unzip. Besides very often a single deb-package includes many different perl modules, which are by all means not included into Description. i.e. At present it is very hard to write an utility of the search of a name of deb-package according to a name of Perl-module. Bringing into service the possibility of the unambiguous search according to the module name will give an opportunity to improve dh-make-perl and write utilities such as I described in my first mail etc.
