NAME

       apt-cudf-get - wrapper for calling apt-get with external solvers

SYNOPSIS

       apt-cudf-get [arguments]

DESCRIPTION

       apt-cudf-get is a wrapper that allows one to invoke apt-get with
       external solvers while ignoring apt's pinning.

       All options are passed on to apt-get.

       Normally, apt uses so-called pinning to select a candidate version of a
       package in case there are several versions available. This also holds
       when calling apt-get with external solvers. However, when it is not
       possible to find a solution under this constraint, it may be useful to
       relax pinning and to allow the external solver to choose among all
       available versions of packages in order to satisfy dependencies, not
       only those that are selected by the pinning.  This is precisely what
       apt-cudf-get does.

       Note that, when using an external solver, the proposed solution may
       contain any available version of the packages that are given as
       arguments to install on the command line without specifying a version
       qualifier.

       For example

           apt-cudf-get --solver aspcud install ocaml

       may propose to install any available version of ocaml, while

           apt-cudf-get --solver aspcud install ocaml=4.01.0

       will only propose to install ocaml in version 4.01.0

BUGS

       Not all types of arguments to apt are correctly treated by this
       wrapper, in particular not the +pkg and -pkg shorthands for
       installation and removal requests.
