DD-LIST(1)                  General Commands Manual                 DD-LIST(1)

       dd-list - nicely list .deb packages and their maintainers

       dd-list  [-hiusV] [--help] [--stdin] [--sources Sources_file] [--dctrl]
       [--version] [--uploaders] [package ...]

       dd-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 <jrandom@debian.org>

              Diana Hacker <diana@example.org>

       This  is  useful when you want, for example, to produce a list of pack-
       ages 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  delim-

       -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 out-
              put, which might be a binary package name.

       -z, --uncompress
              Try to uncompress the --dctrl input before  parsing.   Supported
              compression formats are gz, bzip2 or xz.

       -s, --sources Sources_file
              Read package information from the specified Sources_files.  This
              can be given multiple times.  The files can be gz, bzip2  or  xz
              compressed.   If  the filename does not end in .gz, .bz2 or .xz,
              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  --nou-
              ploaders  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.
