README

RUST-APT

rust-apt provides bindings to libapt-pkg.

Currently rust-apt has most functionality available such as basic querying of package information, Installing and removing packages, updating the package lists and upgrading the system.

If you find something missing, please make an Issue to request the feature.

This API is subject to change at any time

rust-apt is stable for use, but breaking changes are possible. Breaking changes will be on the minor, never on the patch.

src/raw contains the direct C++ bindings to libapt-pkg that are defined in apt-pkg-c

These are generally considered safe, but may cause segfaults if you do something wrong. We offer no safety guarantees for using the raw bindings directly.

If you find a way to segfault without using the raw bindings directly, please report this as a bug.
