       botch - bootstrap/build order tool chain


       botch is a collection of tools to create and analyze dependency graphs. This task is
       facilitated by a range of individual tools which use the deb822 and graphml formats to
       exchange information with each other.

       Also consider browsing the HTML based doc-base Manual at

       The tools that botch ships allow one to:
