Locating Dependencies for a Package via Apt
I have read the apt-get man page fairly well now and can't be sure how to list the dependencies of a specific package. It's nice to know if a package is NOT installed, what packages are required. Or if a package IS installed, what packages depend on the installed package.
I tried the -V option but I keep getting an error
apt-cache -V <package>
apt-get -V <package>
Anyone know how I can find the desired output via CLI?
***Ahh, I think I was looking for <dpkg -p <package_name>>***
