ara is a utility for searching the Debian package database using boolean regexp queries.

ara can perform sophisticated searches on that database. It is possible to use any field of the package database as a search criterion and any boolean combination thereof.

ara can also call APT (or any user-configurable command) to install or remove packages matching a query.
