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
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 <email@example.com>
Diana Hacker <firstname.lastname@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.
Print brief help message.
Read package names from the standard input, instead of taking
them from the command line. Package names are whitespace delim-
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.
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.
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.
Only list package Maintainers, do not list Uploaders.
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).
Print the version.
