curses-apt-key is a (still very hackish) text-mode interface to Debian's APT key management tool apt-key.

It is written from scratch in Perl and basically a text-mode clone of Joey Schulze's Perl/GTK based gui-apt-key. It also reuses some of gui-apt-key's internal Perl modules.


curses-apt-key depends on:

  • libcurses-ui-perl
  • gui-apt-key (needs its GAK::Backend)


For now, the most recent code should always be available on Github.
