sync-available


SYNOPSIS
       sync-available

       sync-available --version

       sync-available --help

DESCRIPTION
       This  program  updates  the dpkg(8) available database with the data in
       the apt(8) package database.  This is  required  for  grep-available(1)
       and other similar programs to give up-to-date results.

       The same functionality is available through dselect(8), when it is con-
       figured to use apt(8) as its acquisition method.  However, this program
       does not require that dselect(8) is installed.

EXIT STATUS
       The  program  exits with status code 0 if all went well, and a non-zero
       status code otherwise.

OPTIONS
       --version
              Output the name and version of the program onto standard  output
              stream.

       --help Give a brief usage statement on the standard output stream.

ENVIRONMENT
       TMPDIR The  name  of  the  directory where temporary files are created.
              Default is /tmp.
