Listing uninstalled package names with a given pattern?
I often need to query the repositories to find if a given application is available.
But "apt-file list | grep -i myapp" returns so many hits that it's useless.
For instance, how would I be able to find the name of the OpenSSHd server for Debian, without also getting all the libraries that have "ssh" in them?
Edit: "apt-cache search myapp" doesn't work either, as "apt-cache search ssh" returned items like "weirdx - X server in Java".
Edit: This seems to do the job: "apt-cache search ssh | grep ssh"
