Command line Application search
Hi there, I am a newb to linux. Right now I am running Ubunto Dapper. I understanb the apt-get command, and I have a question. My old teacher showed me a way to search for programs using the command like something like apt-search "program name" and then it would bring back programs with the program name you were looking for, and from that you would go apt-get install "program name". I don't remember the syntax for this way of searching for programs, and I was wondering if anyone could help me out with that. I have looked in help and man files. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
