 The attached program manager took me about an hour to create.
 Please note that the attached was ( and still is) a trial -working (i.e. I
still working on it) copy and is probably not a complete package management

This would be a part of a complete system that would start from the initial
and go all the way through to a complete program manager.

The system I had envisioned consisted of at least two modules.
One was the package creator/installer which would take any type of package
archive (REDHAT, Debian. Slackware, tarball) and install it on a linux

The manager would be called from the installer and create the necessary
files for
program management.

I was side tracked before completion of the entire script so if those that
are in power deem it worthy then use it as you will
