apt-reverse lists reverse dependencies for a given
package, ie. what packages depend on the given one, using the
AptPkg Perl interface
to the APT database. Other tools can give the same information, but
apt-reverse is simple and includes package descriptions to remind
you what the depending package is for.
Read more (only a little more) in the
online man page (5k, html).
