To be fair, I haven't tried this package out yet, but it looks interesting enough (and I'm desparate to keep things showing up here). These programs seem to build on grep-dctrl and the popularity-context and provide new ways to explore your Debian system.
These programs are designed to integrate with standard shell tools, extending them to operate on the Debian packaging system.
These are also included, because they are useful and don't justify their own packages:
- dgrep - Search all files in specified packages for a regex
- dglob - Generate a list of package names which match a pattern
- debget - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT's database
- dpigs - Show which installed packages occupy the most space
- debman - Easily view man pages from a binary .deb without extracting
- checkrestart - Help to find and restart processes which are using old versions of upgraded files (such as libraries)
- popbugs - Display a customized release-critical bug list based on packages you use (using popularity-contest data)
More information on this package can be found on the Debian web site.
