deb2solv - convert one or more Debian package files into a solv file

deb2solv [OPTIONS] PKG1.deb ...

The deb2solv tool converts the meta data from one or more Debian packages into the solv file written to standard output.


Read the rpm file names from the specified MANIFESTFILE. You can use - to read the manifest from standard input.


Use a null byte as line terminator for manifest files instead of a newline. This is useful if the file names can contain newlines. See also the -print0 option in find.

deb(5), dpkg-deb(1)
