chdist - script to easily play with several distributions SYNOPSIS
chdist [options] [command] [command parameters] DESCRIPTION
chdist is a rewrite of what used to be known as 'MultiDistroTools' (or mdt). Its use is to create 'APT trees' for several distributions, making it easy to query the status of packages in other distribution without using chroots, for instance. OPTIONS
-h, --help Provide a usage message. -d, --data-dir DIR Choose data directory (default: $HOME/.chdist/). -a, --arch ARCH Choose architecture (default: `dpkg --print-architecture`). --version Display version information. COMMANDS
create DIST [URL RELEASE SECTIONS] Prepare a new tree named DIST apt-get DIST <update|source|...> Run apt-get inside DIST apt-cache DIST <show|showsrc|...> Run apt-cache inside DIST apt-rdepends DIST [...] Run apt-rdepends inside DIST src2bin DIST SRCPKG List binary packages for SRCPKG in DIST bin2src DIST BINPKG List source package for BINPKG in DIST compare-packages DIST1 DIST2 [DIST3, ...] compare-bin-packages DIST1 DIST2 [DIST3, ...] List versions of packages in several DISTributions compare-versions DIST1 DIST2 compare-bin-versions DIST1 DIST2 Same as compare-packages/compare-bin-packages, but also runs dpkg --compare-versions and display where the package is newer. compare-src-bin-packages DIST Compare sources and binaries for DIST compare-src-bin-versions DIST Same as compare-src-bin-packages, but also run dpkg --compare-versions and display where the package is newer grep-dctrl-packages DIST [...] Run grep-dctrl on *_Packages inside DIST grep-dctrl-sources DIST [...] Run grep-dctrl on *_Sources inside DIST list List available DISTs COPYRIGHT

dglob - Expand package names or files matching a pattern SYNOPSIS
dglob [-a] pattern dglob [-0] -f pattern DESCRIPTION
dglob lists packages names matching a pattern. It can also list all the files they contain. By default dglob only searches installed packages; the -a switch widens the search (see "OPTIONS"). The list is written to stdout, one name per line. grep-dctrl(1) and grep-aptavail(1) are used to search the list of packages, so you should refer to its documentation for information on how patterns are matched. By default, all packages whose name contains the given string will be matched, but several options are available to modify this behavior (see "OPTIONS"). If you use dglob with the -f option, all files in the matched packages are listed instead of their names. If you do not use de -a switch, only existing, plain (i.e. no symlinks, directories or other special ones) files are listed. If the -a switch is use then all files will be listed both for installed and non-installed packages. The filenames are written to stdout, one file per line. You can use the -0 option to get the filenames separated by '' instead of a newline. OPTIONS
dglob supports the following options: -a Search through all available packages, not just installed ones. If set, grep-aptavail(1) is used. -f List all files in the matched packages. By default, this lists only installed (i.e. locally existing) files from installed packages. If used together with -a then it will list all files both of installed and non-installed packages by mean of apt-file(1). If apt-file is not installed, using -f together with -a is rather pointless. -0 When listing files (with -f) use '' as a separator instead of a newline. When specified without -f, this options does nothing. -r, -e, -i, -X, -v These options are passed directly to grep-dctrl(1) or to grep-aptavail(1) to modify how the pattern is matched. See grep-dctrl(1). FILES
/var/lib/dpkg/status dpkg(8) status file, which serves as source for the list of available and installed packages. AUTHOR
