NAME

rpmdev-spectool - manual page for rpmdev-spectool 1.1.0  

DESCRIPTION

usage: rpmdev-spectool [-h] [--list-files] [--get-files] [--version] [--all] [--sources] [--patches] [--source SOURCE] [--patch PATCH] [--define DEFINE] [--directory DIRECTORY] [--sourcedir] [--dry-run] [--force] [--debug] specfile

Spectool is a tool to expand and download sources and patches from specfiles.

If you experience problems with specific specfiles, try to run

rpmbuild --nobuild --nodeps <specfile>

on the file which might give a clue why spectool fails on a file (ignore anything about missing sources or patches). The plan is to catch errors like this in spectool itself and warn the user about it in the future.  

positional arguments:

specfile

-h, --help
show this help message and exit
