decompyle package information

name decompyle
section python

a Python byte-code decompiler

Decompyle converts Python byte-code back into equivalent Python source. It accepts byte-code from any Python version between 1.5 and 2.3 inclusive. Note that it cannot yet decompile byte-code from Python 2.4 and 2.5. The generated source is very readable: docstrings, lists, tuples and hashes get pretty-printed. Decompyle can also verify the equivalence of the generated source by compiling it and comparing the new byte-code with the original byte-code.


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.
