Question required feature in apt-get


Hi all

in yum we can use whatprovides feature to find exact file which package will install. like libXpat.so.6

is there some things similar in apt-get or aptitude?
I've read man page and found nothing.


regards,

Finding the "package name" that provides <file> :

# apt-get install apt-file
$ apt-file search <file>

http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/apt-file
http://pwet.fr/man/linux/commandes/apt_file
