Red Hat Package Manager
The RPM Package Manager is a powerful command line driven package management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating computer software packages. Each software package consists of an archive of files along with information about the package like its version, a description, and the like. There is also a related API “Application Program Interface”, permitting advanced developers to bypass ‘shelling out’ to a command line, and to manage such transactions from within a native coding language.
