aha, ok. The above resulted into successes and a bit more.

1. I got a list which has something around 1000 odd packages and libraries

2. Then I downloaded process.pl from the same place as shared by pabs -

wget https://anonscm.debian.org/cgit/publicity/dpn.git/plain/scripts/process.pl

3. Changed the mode to have executable bit

$ chmod +x process.pl

Then ran it -

$ ./process.pl

4. It started churning out entries like these on stdout -

<li><a href="https://packages.debian.org/unstable/main/libupnp-1.8-10";>libupnp-1.8-10
— Portable SDK for UPnP Devices, version 1.8 (shared library)</a></li>

Now I have two queries -

1. How can I get the output I am getting on CLI I can have on a file -
would something like/similar to

[$] ./process.pl > list.json

work or something better ?

2. Is there a way to remove libraries from the list itself ? It would
make the list smaller and something on which manual processing could
be easily done if the description is also there.

FWIW am sharing the list that is generated.
