chdist - script to easily play with several distributions
chdist [options] [command] [command parameters]
chdist is a rewrite of what used to be known as 'MultiDistroTools' (or mdt). Its use is to create 'APT trees' for several distributions, making it easy to query the status of packages in other distribution without using chroots, for instance.
-h, --help Provide a usage message. -d, --data-dir DIR Choose data directory (default: $HOME/.chdist/). -a, --arch ARCH Choose architecture (default: `dpkg --print-architecture`). --version Display version information.
