Unbelievably inflexible build tool

Dammit is a tool to drive compilation processes, similar to make or jam. The main difference is that the language used to describe projects is purely descriptive and does not allow for custom rules, thus forcing people to declare what they want to do, rather than how it should be done, leaving a lot less potential for error. This "release" should be viewed as a "technology preview", as only very rudimentary functionality is implemented so far.


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.
