How to list all installed packages?


Is there an easy way using apt, dpkg or Synpatic to make a list of all installed packages as a text file?

Code:
dpkg -l > packages.txt
will dump all packages installed to text file (that's an L, not 1)

Alternatively

dpkg --get-selections > installed_packages

This can be read back with

dpkg --set-selections < installed_packages
