what it is and how to use this. I am much eager to know about it.
I would be very thankfull if you provide me the detalied information and

your help.

I'm taking a guess that you're actually referring to "wajig" which is essentially a unified command line interface to the collection apt tools such as apt-get, apt-cache, dpkg, etc.

I use it myself for the most part, though occasionally I will use aptitude (big dist-upgrades on unstable for example). The basic commands are similar to the commands for apt-get, such as update, install, remove, purge, upgrade, dist-upgrade, etc. Other commands I use frequently include search and whichpkg.
