NAME

bpkg-pkg-verify – verify package archive

SYNOPSIS

bpkg pkg-verify [options] file

DESCRIPTION

The pkg-verify command verifies that the specified archive file is a valid bpkg package. Specifically, it checks that the file's name and the top-level directory inside the archive match the canonical name-version form and that there is a valid manifest file in that top-level directory. Additionally, if the --deep option is specified, it also checks that the files referenced by the *-file manifest values are present in the archive and are not empty.

PKG-VERIFY OPTIONS

--silent
Suppress the error messages about the reason why the package is invalid. Just return the error status.
--deep
Verify files referenced by the *-file manifest values.
--ignore-unknown
Ignore unknown manifest entries. By default, bpkg will refuse to declare such a package valid since it cannot be sure the unknown entries are valid.
--manifest
Instead of printing the successful verification result in the human-readable form, dump the package manifest to stdout. If the --deep option is specified, then in the resulting manifest the *-file values are replaced with the contents of the referenced files and the package dependency constraints are completed.
