rospack is a command-line tool for retrieving information about ROS packages available on the filesystem. It implements a wide variety of commands ranging from locating ROS packages in the filesystem, listing available packages, to calculating the dependency tree of packages. It is also used in the ROS build system for calculating build information for packages.

For an equivalent tool for stacks, see rosstack.

Prior to ROS Fuerte, rospack was included in the ros stack. Since Fuerte, it is a standalone tool.
