+the output format is a package list as slapt-get expects it for dependencies.
+(the --short option would generate a list without version number)
+passing the --xdl option would list the dependencies for each file of the package.
+to keep the samples short this option is skiped here.
+If the given argument is a file but not with binary dependencies, sbbdep will

through having a static storage sbbdep is very fast in querying these information.
- currently query for package/packages and file/packages in both directions are implemented.

For query/generate information sbbdep itself is not a must requirement,
the sqlite3 db can be used with other programming languages or sql query tool like
the sqlite3 cli or sqliteman.
A description of the database can be found in README_db.txt.
