NAME

       dpkg-purge - mark packages for purge

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.
