NAME

       dpigs - Show which installed packages occupy the most space

SYNOPSIS

       dpigs [options]

DESCRIPTION

       dpigs sorts the installed packages by size and outputs the largest ones. Per default dpigs
       displays the largest 10 packages. You can change this value by using the -n option (see
       "OPTIONS"). The information is taken from the dpkg status file with grep-status(1).

OPTIONS

       -n, --lines=N
           Display the N largest packages on the system (default 10).

       -s, --status=FILE
           Use FILE instead of the default dpkg status file (which is /var/lib/dpkg/status
           currently).

       -S, --source
           Display the largest source packages of binary packages installed on the system.

       -H, --human-readable
           Display package sizes in human-readable format (like ls -lh or du -h)

       -h, --help
           Display some usage information and exit.
