.SH DESCRIPTION
.B slapt-get
is an APT like system for Slackware package management.  It
allows one to search for packages, install them, and upgrade the
installed packages all with a few simple commands.  Additional
features include listing all available packages, listing all
installed packages, and removing installed packages.
.B slapt-get
tries to emulate Debian's apt-get as closely as possible.
.SH OPTIONS
.TP
.B --download-only
Download the package only.  Do not install/upgrade.
.TP
.B --simulate
Will not install or download packages.
.TP
.B --no-prompt
Do not prompt for package upgrade confirmation.
.TP
.B --reinstall
Install the package even if it is already installed.
.TP
.B --ignore-excludes
Ignore exclude list and install excluded packages anyway.
.TP
.B --no-md5
Do not perform MD5 check sum on package.  This is dangerous!
.TP
.B --no-dep
Ignore dependency failures on --install, --upgrade, or --dist-upgrade
.TP
.B --disable-dep-check
Skip the dependency check
.SH TARGETS
.TP
.B --update
Retrieves package data from MIRROR location.
.TP
.B --upgrade
Upgrade installed packages if newer versions are available.
.TP
.B --dist-upgrade
This is DANGEROUS.  Upgrade to newer Slackware release.  This is the same as --upgrade, with the addition of checking to make sure that all the base packages, from the base disk set, are also installed.  Prior to running dist-upgrade, make sure that the package cache is updated and the crucial packages (glibc-solibs, sed, and pkgtools) are upgraded.  See UPGRADE.TXT on your local Slackware mirror.
.TP
.B --install [package(s)]

.TP
.B --remove [package(s)]
Remove specified package(s).
.TP

.TP
.B --search [expression]

to the names, locations, and descriptions of packages.

List available packages.
.TP
.B --installed
List installed packages.
.TP

Purge cached/downloaded packages from local storage.
