        That is not true. You really need to learn scripting, if you
 think it is true, all one needs is a script that parses
 /var/lib/dpkg/status, and looks at the section and status
 fields. (which may well be what vrms does)

 : I've tried (in vi) "g/[a-z]\n[a-z]/s//_/"...but that doesn't : cut
 it.  Any ideas?  (I take it that it may be a two-pass sort of
 solution). In the first pass, install perl. :-) Larry Wall
