      lvu is part of the lunar source-based package management suite. It is a
      general purpose command-line tool for displaying package logs,  version
      information,   checking  for  installed  packages,  checksums,  message
      digests, maintainer information, package  URL  information,  displaying
      new  packages,  untracked files, sections, searching for files that are
      installed, finding when modules were created and packages in the  soft-
      ware  catalogue.  It  can even take and retrieve snapshots of currently
      installed packages for easy duplication.

             instead of the default module.
unedit <module></dt>
             Discards your 'edit'ed zlocal module. Works the same as removing
