apt — Advanced Package Tool

Examples (TL;DR)


APT is a management system for software packages.  Originally written for Debian and the deb package format, APT was ported and became APT-RPM to manage the rpm(8) package format.  APT-RPM can be used by any RPM-based distribution, such as Conectiva, Red Hat, SUSE, ALT-Linux, etc.

For further information on how to use APT, refer to apt-get(8) or visit http://apt-rpm.org/.
