flexible package manager -- console interface
This package provides a console interface to Cupt library, which implements high-level package manager for Debian and derivatives. Cupt is written with flexibility and reliability in mind and uses dpkg as the back-end. . Cupt uses the same APT infrastructure, e.g. index files, deb cache archive files, configuration files. It understands some of widely used APT options. . Some features: - strict full-case resolver; - resolver reasons tracking; - command-line and 'cupt::*' option name checker; - case-sensitive search; - pinning by source package name; - pinning by package groups using shell-like patterns; - configurable 'depends' and 'rdepends' subcommands; - 'satisfy' subcommand; - support of LZMA-compressed indexes; - source versions synchronization; - 'shell' subcommand (to get command history, search etc. working, install the package 'libreadline7'); - integration with debdelta (to get it, install the package 'debdelta'); - system snapshots (needs packages 'dpkg-dev' and 'dpkg-repack'). . Its interface is mostly like apt-get/aptitude console interface. . Cupt has built-in support for APT repositories using the file:// or copy:// URL schemas. For access to remote repositories using HTTP or FTP, install a download method such as libcupt4-2-downloadmethod-curl.
