NAMEdd-list - nicely list .deb packages and their maintainers
SYNOPSISdd-list [-hiusV] [--help] [--stdin] [--sources Sources_file] [--dctrl] [--version] [--uploaders] [package ...]
DESCRIPTIONdd-list produces nicely formatted lists of Debian (.deb) packages and their maintainers.
Input is a list of source or binary package names on the command line (or the standard input if --stdin is given). Output is a list of the following format, where package names are source packages by default:
- J. Random Developer <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- j-random-package j-random-other
- fun-package more-fun-package
This is useful when you want, for example, to produce a list of packages that need to attention from their maintainers, e.g., to be rebuilt when a library version transition happens.
- -h, --help
- Print brief help message.
- -i, --stdin
- Read package names from the standard input, instead of taking them from the command line. Package names are whitespace delimited.
- -d, --dctrl
- Read package list from standard input in the format of a Debian package control file. This includes the status file, or output of apt-cache. This is the fastest way to use dd-list, as it uses the maintainer information from the input instead of looking up the maintainer of each listed package.
- If no Source: line is given, the Package: name is used for output, which might be a binary package name.
- -z, --uncompress
- Try to uncompress the --dctrl input before parsing. Supported compression formats are gz and bzip2.
- -s, --sources Sources_file
- Read package information from the specified Sources_files. This can be given multiple times. The files can be gz or bzip2 compressed. If the filename does not end in .gz or .bz2, then the -z option must be used.
- If no Sources_files are specified, any files matching /var/lib/apt/lists/*_source_Sources will be used.
- -u, --uploaders
- Also list developers who are named as uploaders of packages, not only the maintainers; this is the default behaviour, use --nouploaders to prevent it. Uploaders are indicated with "(U)" appended to the package name.
- -nou, --nouploaders
- Only list package Maintainers, do not list Uploaders.
- -b, --print-binary
- Use binary package names in the output instead of source package names (has no effect with --dctrl if the Package: line contains source package names).
- -V, --version
- Print the version.
