> The documentation for the AR format can/should mention that it is the basis for Debian/Ubuntu
packages. A .deb file is actually an AR file with three elements:
> _debian-binary_: version number ("2.0")
> _data.tar.gz_: compressed tarball containing the package's files
> _control.tar.gz_: compressed tarball containing the package's metadata (information,
installation and removal scripts, etc.)
> People will normally want to use the Debian package management tools but it's nice to
know that we can access the 'original' content if necessary.
