Spack is a standalone package manager, using its own cpio-based but fully Slackware-compatible package format. It is intended to be used either "as is" on a distribution not requiring dependency checking (typically LFS based, or as an alternative for the pkgtools on Slackware, for which it has a dedicated compatibility mode, allowing it to produce and deal with the traditional (tar-based) Slackware packages.
It provides all the commands you need to create, install, upgrade, remove, arrange and retrieve a large set of packages. These commands are implemented as mere shell scripts, trying to stick as much as it makes sense to the POSIX standard and the traditional Bourne shell, so the chance to meet unexpected behaviours is reasonably small.
