bickley daemons for meta data management API and framework

Bickley metadata system are made by two daemons: bkl-orbiter and bkl-investigator. Bkl-orbiter is always running and keeps track of various sources, watching for files on the sources that need to be indexed. When it has found something that needs extracting, the bkl-investigator is started and scans the file for metadata which it then sends to the orbiter. The orbiter puts this metadata into the database.


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.
