apt-get search has been removed??? howto search now?


I have not used debian based distros in years. currently on my Pi I am running http://www.raspbmc.com/ a pure media server that is built on a debian (apt-get) system.

years past you could apt-get search foo and get a response much like yum search.

well according to apt-get --help, that is no longer an option, so how does on in the dpackage world search via apt-get?
