Small toolbox-style utilities for Debian systems

These programs are designed to integrate with standard shell tools, extending them to operate on the Debian packaging system.

 dglob  - Generate a list of package names which match a pattern
          [dctrl-tools, apt*, apt-file*, perl*]
 dgrep  - Search all files in specified packages for a regex
          [dctrl-tools, apt-file (both via dglob)]

These are also included, because they are useful and don't justify their own packages:

            - find packages which enhance installed packages [apt,
            - Help to find and restart processes which are using old versions
              of upgraded files (such as libraries) [python3, procps, lsof*]
 debget     - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT's database [apt]
 debman     - Easily view man pages from a binary .deb without extracting
              [man, apt* (via debget)]
 debmany    - Select manpages of installed or uninstalled packages [man |
              sensible-utils, whiptail | dialog | zenity, apt*, konqueror*,
              libgnome2-bin*, xdg-utils*]
 dhomepage  - Open homepage of a package in a web browser [dctrl-tools,
              sensible-utils*, www-browser* | x-www-browser*]
 dman       - Fetch manpages from online service [curl,
              man, lsb-release*]
 dpigs      - Show which installed packages occupy the most space
            - Get list of dbgsym packages from core dump or PID [dctrl-tools,
              elfutils, libipc-system-simple-perl]
 popbugs    - Display a customized release-critical bug list based on
              packages you use (using popularity-contest data) [python3,
            - find which package might have broken another [python3, apt]
            - find which package might have broken the build of another
              [python3 (via which-pkg-broke), apt]

Package name in brackets denote (non-essential) dependencies of the scripts. Packages names with an asterisk ("*") denote optional dependencies, all other are hard dependencies.
