    use Slackware::Slackget::PkgTools;

    my $pkgtool = Slackware::Slackget::PkgTools->new($config);
    $pkgtool->install($package1);
    $pkgtool->remove($package_list);
    foreach (@{$packagelist->get_all})

        my $pkgtool = new Slackware::Slackget::PkgTool ($config);

** IMPORTANT NOTE ** : in the old time, when this module was poorly coded (by me) it was taking care of sending network messages. This is obviously not its role, so it do not do that anymore.
