apt is a front end to dpkg more or less. dpkg handles actual package
installation, apt handles dependency resolving, retrieving packages,
and archive searching(apt-cache) among other things..
I usually do not use dselect, can't remember the last time I did,
I was never fond of it(ever since my first debian install where I spent
about 4 hours resolving package conflicts and choosing what I wanted to
install back in 1998), I prefer apt-cache and apt-get ..I've installed
so many debian systems that I've memorized the names of most of the
packages that I use ...
