Although what tinkster stated is correct, that will just produce a bunch of names in almost no time to read.
You can type:
rpm -qa | grep «string» = looks for the string you specify (without «») within the installed packages. For examples: rpm -qa | grep libstdc++ , lists any installed package that contains the string libstdc++ .
rpm -qa | more = lists all the files but pauses each time your screen is filled. By pressing enter you advace one line, space bar you advance one page and by pressing q you quit at any time.
BTW, using the | is called piping. It's sending the output from one program (in this case rpm -qa) to another one that filters it. There are a lot of combinations as you might suppose.
Hope that helps
