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
