Alien (package converter) 8.93

Alien is a Linux software package conversion tool. It transforms between Debian (.deb), Red Had (.rpm), Solaris (.pkg) and Slackware (.tgz/txz) archives. After transforming meta data and contained installation scripts, it can even install them right away. It runs most robustly on Debian-based systems, but also works with less frequently used RPM distros.
