SYNOPSIS

       ben FRONTEND [OPTIONS]

       ben [-h|-help|--help]

DESCRIPTION

       The ben(1) command is a set of utilities written in OCaml. It provides a full featured

       All frontends share a common list of options described below.

FRONTENDS

       download
           has no command-line options, except the shared ones. It downloads all Sources.gz files
           and all Packages.gz files for selected architectures and areas.

       query
           This utility is pretty much like grep-dctrl(1). Given a list of Packages or Sources
           files, it performs a query and outputs the result.

       monitor
           The frontend monitor builds a monitor page for a transition that is described by few
           criteria (the list of affected packages, a description of good package and the
           description of a broken package).

       tracker
           This frontend uses the monitor to generate a summary page about all known transitions.
           An example of such summary can be found at https://release.debian.org/transitions/.

       rebuild
           This frontend rebuilds all packages matching a criterion, respecting the order of
           build-dependencies.
