NAME

       aspcud - solve dependencies between packages

SYNOPSIS

       aspcud input-file output-file criterion

DESCRIPTION

       aspcud  solves package installation/removal/upgrade problems expressed in the CUDF format.
       It is intended to be called by package installers, but may also be used independently.

       If the tool is not able to find a solution then it prints "FAIL" to stdout.

ARGUMENTS

       All three command line arguments are mandatory:

       input-file
              is the pathname of a file containing the problem specification in CUDF format (both
              the universe and the request)

       output-file
              is  the  pathname  of a file into which the solution will be written in CUDF output
              format. If the file does not exist it will be created, if it does already exist  it
              will be overwritten without warning.

       criterion
              desribes  the  optimization  criterion.  The  criterion  is  a non-empty and comma-
              separated list of signed function names. Each sign is either "+" or "-",  and  each
              function  name  is one of removed, new, changed, notuptodate, unmet_recommends. One
              may also use the macros "trendy" or "paranoid".
