PKG-DEPTREE(1) User Contributed Perl Documentation PKG-DEPTREE(1)
pkg-deptree - A Package dependency tretty printing tool.
usage: pkg-deptree [options] [reg-exp [reg-exp ...]]
where the options are:
--check-recommends Check Recommends too. [OFF]
--check-suggests Check Suggests too. [OFF]
This utility prints out a dependency tree of installed
packages, optionally taking a list of space separated
regular expressions on the command line to limit the
starting points. If no regular expressions are given, then
all installed packages shall be displayed.
The default is to assume that the list of installed packages may be
derived from the file I</var/lib/dpkg/status>, but the user may
override this by providing a I<Packages> file listing all the
packages that are assumed to be installed.

Do not underestimate the value of print statements for
debugging. Don't have aesthetic convulsions when using them, either.
