Command line utility for searching the Debian package database

ara is a utility for searching the Debian package database using boolean regexp queries. ara can perform sophisticated searches on that database. It is possible to use any field of the package database as a search criterion and any boolean combination thereof. ara can also call APT (or any user-configurable command) to install or remove packages matching a query. This is the bytecode version, which is slower than the native one.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
