Package description for 'dpkg'

The debian package manager

 The `dpkg' suite contains the programs which handle Debian (.deb)
 packages. It was developed on Debian GNU/Linux but can be used on all
 Linux distributions and most Unix systems. The `dpkg' command can be
 used to install, remove and manage .deb binary packages, and it
 maintains a package database which gets updated on changes. It is also a
 front-end to the low-level `dpkg-deb' tool, which is oriented towards
 manipulating archives. However, the primary interface to dpkg is the
 `dselect' program, which is used to get and display packages for the
 user to select for (de)installation.
