Is there an "apt-get" equivalent of "yum list available"?


I've been able to find a good deal of information on apt-get, but haven't been able to find an answer to this question (probably because the answer is "no", but I just wanted to be sure)...

Is there an "apt-get" equivalent of "yum list available" or "yum list java*" (for example)?

1) apt-cache search all


2) apt-cache search jdk

But for better result is best using:

apt-cache search jdk | grep sun

Also you can use the command apititude.

AleLinuxBSD,
A helpful hint (I hope): If you would put spaces after the commas in the list of distributions in your profile, it wouldn't take up so much of the screen.
