NAME


Aptsh - interactive APT shell

SYNOPSIS


aptsh {install pkg | remove pkg | update | ... } [-?, --help] [-c, --config-file
configuration_file ] [-s, --storing] [-v, --version] [-x, --execute aptsh_command ]

DESCRIPTION


Aptsh is a tool which makes using APT much easier. It gives you an interactive shell with
all those sweet features like tab-completion (which you can use to complete name of a
package), simpler access to apt commands and easier package searching (ls, rls). Although
it's not necessary, it just tries to make life easier.

Other way of using Aptsh is using it as a normal command-line tool, a replacement for
apt-* commands.

USAGE


We'll try to do some ordinary administration tasks - install/remove/search few packages.
As a root, type 'aptsh' and press return. Then type 'ins', and press Tab - 'ins' should
change into 'install' followed by a whitespace. Now write down 'kde', and press Tab twice
- if you're using Debian or other large distro, it should ask you whether you want to see
all packages which begin with 'kde'. As you should have noticed - it works exactly like a
good shell. You can also play with 'remove' - then aptsh will prompt only installed
packages. And remember, that you can pipe results of commands (ie. dump | grep ^Package |
cut -d -f 2 | grep ^kde ). You can execute a normal shell command by preceding it with
".".

COMMANDS


Aptsh commands:

dump-cfg
Dump all aptsh options.

dpkg Query dpkg.

enviroments you have to put the expression between " " or preced special

about special chars above!

queue-commit-say
Commit commands kept in command queue, automatically answering to all
prompts. It should be followed by the answer, if not, it answers \n (then

"commit-say y" - then Aptsh answers 'y' to all prompts.

queue Display currently stored commands.

queue-remove
Remove stored commands from list. It should be followed by list or section
of numbers of items to remove. Proper usage of this command would be:
"commit-remove 1 3 10-15 21" - it will remove items numbered as 1, 3, 10,
11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 21. You can use alias 'last' which refers to the last
item.

given as arguments).
