dpkg-www - program to remotely open a WWW Debian package browser


dpkg-www [-s|--stdout] [-h|--host host] [query]


dpkg-www is used to remotely control a WEB browser and open a dpkg URL on the local host
from an interactive shell or script.

If the command is invoked while running under X-window the script will try to find an
installed X browser to open the specified URL. If not running under X it will try to use
a text browser instead.

If Netscape is found and a Netscape instance is already running it will be asked to open
the dpkg URL on localhost with the optional query supplied on the command line. If there
is no browser running, it will start automatically a new one.

The functionality provided by this program is identical to running a web browser with the
-remote openURL(http://localhost/cgi-bin/dpkg) argument or opening the same URL from
within the browser.

dpkg-www-installer is an helper application which can configured in the WWW browser for
web installation. It should never be invoked directly by the user.


-s, --stdout
Redirect output to stdout. Requires one of the text browsers (lynx, lynx-ssl or
links) installed.

-h, --host host
Send the query to a remote host, where dpkg-www must be installed.

query Specifies an optional package name, an absolute pathname or a query argument which
is passed to the dpkg cgi-bin. See dpkg-www(8) for more information about the use
of the cgi.

Use dpkg-www online using onworks.net services
