NAME

       chdist - script to easily play with several distributions

SYNOPSIS

       chdist [options] [command] [command parameters]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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.
