A Unix Packager For MS-Windows Systems
This page describes, documents, and gives you detailed information about the Windows Packager called wpkg which is based on the well known Debian packager named dpkg. wpkg can be used to create packages at your development site and then seamlessly install, upgrade, and remove packages at your destribution sites.
This packager uses the same format (Debian 2.0) as dpkg so the packages are 100% compatible with dpkg (although you are unlikely to install them on a Debian based system!)
The project includes tools that generate DOT files. These can be compiled (transformed) into images representing your packages and their dependencies. This is very powerful when you want to look at your current development environment. The following is an example of a tree with several different types of connections between the different packages.
