       dpkg-purge - program to flag for purge a package or packages

SYNOPSIS

       dpkg-purge [PACKAGE...]

DESCRIPTION

       dpkg-purge marks package(s) to be purged.

       It  achieves  this  by  running  `dpkg --set-selections' and piping in the package name(s)
       followed by `purge'.

       NOTE: this program does not install, remove, purge any package. it ONLY sets the status of
       the  package.  Any  actual  removal  or  purging  is  done the next time dselect, apt-get,
       aptitude, etc are run.
