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.

 dgrep - Search all files in specified packages for a regex
 dglob - Generate a list of package names which match a pattern

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

 debget - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT's database
 dpigs - Show which installed packages occupy the most space
 debman - Easily view man pages from a binary .deb without extracting
 checkrestart - Help to find and restart processes which are using old
                versions of upgraded files (such as libraries)
 popbugs - Display a customized release-critical bug list based on
                packages you use (using popularity-contest data)
