dpkg_mini is a very compact script that does some useful actions upon debian archive files.
dpkg_mini [install remove skel implode explode control list depends check configure] file(s).deb [dir]
works in any linux with ar(1) tar(1), dpkg is not required of course
is not a substitute for dpkg(8). ie, install and skel work outside of and independantly from the dpkg system. however for checking out .deb or testing or avoiding force it's a neat little tool !
see man dpkg_mini(1)
despite the "quick release" not saying so, yes it is public domain
- manpage is visible on download page
- sh(1) script < 5 kilo bytes does all of the following:
- install remove skel implode explode control list depends check configure
- file page also has unrelated utils: indent-by-brace rows cols emkfontdirs fix_fonts man-tty-bland toupper tolower check_balance
