dpkg

The "dpkg" suite contains the programs which handle Debian (.deb) packages. It was developed on Debian GNU/Linux but can be used on all Linux distributions and most Unix systems. The "dpkg" command can be used to install, remove and manage .deb binary packages, and it maintains a package database which gets updated on changes. It is also a front-end to the low-level "dpkg-deb" tool, which is oriented towards manipulating archives. However, the primary interface to dpkg is the "dselect" program, which is used to get and display packages for the user to select for (de)installation.
