The grep-dctrl program can answer many questions regarding software packages installed on an Ubuntu or Debian system, given a useful input file. Other tools include sort-dctrl. tbl-dctrl and join-dctrl.

It is most useful as part of an Ubuntu or Debian system, although there are meaningful uses for it in other systems as well. The program allows the user to search for all package records that match a search pattern and output the matching records or selected fields of them. As the program is a filter, it can usefully work together with standard Unixish tools.
