Description: Package maintenance system for Debian GNU/Linux
This package contains the programs which handles the installation and
removal of packages on your system.
The primary interface for the dpkg suite is the `dselect' program;
a more low-level and less user-friendly interface is available in
the form of the `dpkg' command.
