PROGRAM:

NAME


dcontrol -- Query package and source control files for all Debian distributions

SYNOPSIS


dcontrol [options] package[modifiers] ...

DESCRIPTION


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.

MODIFIERS


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

=version
Exact version match

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

/[archive:][suite][/component]
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
https://qa.debian.org/cgi-bin/dcontrol for currently supported values.

OPTIONS


-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.

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES


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:

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

Use dcontrol online using onworks.net services
