parser for debian control-like files

 Parse::DebControl is an easy OO way to parse Debian control files and
 other colon separated key-value pairs. It's specifically designed
 to handle the format used in Debian control files, template files, and
 the cache files used by dpkg.
 .
 For basic format information see:
 http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-controlsyntax
 .
 This module does not actually do any intelligence with the file content
 (because there are a lot of files in this format), but merely handles
 the format. It can handle simple control files, or files hundreds of lines
 long efficiently and easily.
