slacker - Slackware pkgtool Package Management Assistant

slacker (that's right, no capitols... if you truly slack, you don't need that extra shift-keystroke) is a Slackware pkgtool package management assistant. It was primarily designed to allow you to automatically keep your system up to date by periodically checking the 'patches' directory on the slackware ftp site for your installed dist version, then updating to any new packages that it finds there for software that you have previously installed. slacker also has the ability to look for new packages that you do not yet have installed, and then install them for you.
