This is a metapackage which depends upon several other Pike
packages that together make up the recommended Pike installation.
If you want to install every packaged component of the Pike
distribution, please install the pike7.8-full package.
If you want to remove several components this package depends
upon, you can purge this package without worrying about the
functionality loss in Pike and then remove the packages you
don't need on your system.
Pike is an interpreted programming language, for more information
see the description of the pike7.8-core package.
