Python interface to libapt-pkg

The apt-pkg Python interface will provide full access to the internal libapt-pkg structures allowing Python programs to easily perform a variety of functions, such as:

- Access to the APT configuration system - Access to the APT package information database - Parsing of Debian package control files, and other files with a similar structure

Package version:0.6.19


Python-apt is a wrapper to use features of apt from python.

It contains the following modules:

C++ Wrapper:
apt_pkg - access to libapt-pkg (wrapper to the lowlevel c++ code)
apt_inst - access to libapt-inst (wrapper to the lowlevel c++ code)

Python module:
WARNING: the API of this module is not stable yet

apt - high level python interface build on top of apt_pkg, ap


In addition to "apt_pkg" and "apt_inst" (that are thin wrappers around
the c++ libapt code) a new python module "apt" is provided since version
0.6.13 of python-apt.

It is a more python like interface to work with libapt (it uses apt_pkg
internally). Also there are already applications written against the new
apt python interface the API may change in the future and should not be
considered stabl
