NAME

       rdebsums - a recursive debsums

SYNOPSIS

       rdebsums --help  | [  debsum options  ] [  --others  ] package

DESCRIPTION

       rdebsums  runs debsums(1) over a given package and all its dependencies. It can be used to
       make sure a problem with a package is not due to file corruption.

       All but the last element of the command-line and options understood by rdebsums  are  sent
       to debsums(1).

OPTIONS

       --help Prints a short help text

       --others
              Also runs debsums on Recommended and Suggested packages.

EXAMPLES

       Check the package aptitude and all its dependencies:

       rdebsums aptitude

       The same while being significantly less verbose

       rdebsums -s aptitude

BUGS

       rdebsums is quite slow - essentially due to dpkg-query not being extremely fast.

       Currently, rdebsums will be confused by virtual packages.

       --others  is  actually  nearly  useless, as you often end up checking nearly all packages.
       You'll most probably win time by running debsums without arguments.
