Command-line tools to process Debian package information


Debian package information is generally stored in files having a special file format, dubbed the Debian control file format (the dctrl format), a special case of the record jar file format. These tools operate on any files conforming in a general sense to that format and are therefore widely applicable whenever those formats are in play.

Included are:

  grep-dctrl - Grep dctrl-format files
  grep-available - Grep the DPKG available database
  grep-status - Grep the DPKG status database
  grep-aptavail - Grep the APT available database
  grep-debtags - Grep the Debtags package database

  sort-dctrl - Sort dctrl-format files

  tbl-dctrl - Tabulate dctrl-format files

  sync-available - Sync the dpkg available database with
                   the apt database
