dcontrol [options] package[modifiers] ...

       dcontrol queries a remote database of Debian binary and source package
       control files. It can be thought of as an apt-cache webservice that
       also operates for distributions and architectures different from the
       local machine.

       Like apt-cache, packages can be suffixed by modifiers:

           Exact version match

           Query this only architecture. Use @source for source packages,
           @binary excludes source packages.

           Restrict to archive (debian, debian-backports, debian-security,
           debian-volatile), suite (always codenames, with the exception of
           experimental), and/or component (main, updates/main, ...). Use two
           slashes (//) to separate suite and component if the suite name
           contains slashes.  (Component can be left empty.)

       By default, all versions, suites, and architectures are queried. Refer
       to http://qa.debian.org/cgi-bin/dcontrol for currently supported

       -s, --show-suites
           Add headers showing which distribution the control file is from.

       -d, --debug
           Print URL queried.

       -h, --help
           Show a help message.

       -V, --version
           Show version information.

       The two configuration files /etc/devscripts.conf and ~/.devscripts are
       sourced by a shell in that order to set configuration variables.
       Command line options can be used to override configuration file
       settings.  Environment variable settings are ignored for this purpose.
       The currently recognised variable is:

           URL to query. Default is http://qa.debian.org/cgi-bin/dcontrol.
