swaret is an updater for Slackware and Slackware-based distributions. It upgrades, installs, re-installs, and downloads packages, patches, sources (with build scripts), and much more. Dependency support is included, which tracks and fixes missing libraries for all packages. Several Slackware Linux mirrors are used through HTTP, FTP, rsync, or a local filesystem. Third-party Slackware packages are availible on LinuxPackages.net or other repository sites. Internationalization (i18n) is supported.
