The `dpkg' suite contains the programs which handle Debian (.deb) packages. It was developed on Debian GNU/Linux but can be used on all Linux distributions and most Unix systems. The `dpkg' command can be used to install, remove and manage .deb binary packages, and it maintains a package database which gets updated on changes. It is also a front-end to the low-level `dpkg-deb' tool, which is oriented towards manipulating archives. However, the primary interface to dpkg is the `dselect' program, which is used to get and display packages for the user to select for (de)installation.
