I removed the extra spaces between name-version.

As for the info concerning being installed or not, the short answer is
slapt-get --list provides that.  The longer answer is it is unclear at this

point where the overlap is between the slapt-get and slapt-src.

This info is straight from the slackbuild info files.  The SLACKBUILDS.TXT
format itself is not finalized.

This is due to the previous point.  This should be resolved in an updated
SLACKBUILDS.TXT format change.

take care,
