What is Advanced Package Tool?
Apt (for Advanced Package Tool) is a set of core tools inside Debian.
Apt makes it possible to:
- Install applications
- Remove applications
- Keep your applications up to date
Apt, which basically resolves dependency problems and retrieves the requested packages, works with dpkg, another tool, which handles the actual installation and removal of packages (applications). Apt is very powerful, and is primarily used on the command line (console/terminal). There are, however, many GUI/Graphical tools to let you use Apt without having to touch the command line.
