Alien is a program that converts between the rpm (Red Hat, .rpm), dpkg (debian, .deb), stampede (slp), and Slackware (tgz) file formats. If you want to use a package from another distribution than the one you have installed on your system, you can use alien to convert it to your preferred package format and install it.
