       Normally  dselect is invoked without parameters. An interactive menu is
       presented, offering the user a list of actions. If an action  is  given
       as  argument,  then that action is started immediately. Several command
       line parameters are still available to modify the running behaviour  of
       dselect or show additional information about the program.

       All  options  can  be  specified  both  on  the command line and in the
       dselect configuration file /etc/dpkg/dselect.cfg or the  files  on  the
       configuration  directory  /etc/dpkg/dselect.cfg.d/.  Each  line  in the
       configuration file is either an option (exactly the same as the command
       line option but without leading dashes) or a comment (if it starts with
       a #).

       When dselect is started it can perform the  following  actions,  either
       directly  if  it  was specified on the command line or by prompting the
       user with a menu of available actions if running interactively:

   access

       By default, dselect provides several methods such as  cdrom,  multi_cd,
       nfs,  multi_nfs,  harddisk,  mounted,  multi_mount,  floppy or ftp, but
       other packages may provide  additional  methods,  eg.  the  apt  access
       method provided by the apt package.

        dselect

       When  the  sublist of packages is displayed initially, dselect may have
       already set the requested  selection  status  of  some  of  the  listed
       packages,  in order to resolve the depends or conflicts that caused the
       dependency resolution screen to be displayed. Usually, it  is  best  to
       follow up the suggestions made by dselect.

       'R' 'D'  'U'

       enter  dselect  dselect

       dselect  'Q'

        'X'  escape

       If  you  mistakenly  establish some settings and wish to revert all the
       selections to what is currently installed on the system, press the  'C'
       key.   This  is  somewhat  similar  to  using the unhold command on all
       packages, but provides a more obvious panic button in cases  where  the
       user pressed enter by accident.

       HOME   If  set, dselect will use it as the directory from which to read
              the user specific configuration file.
