Search for a Package Using Apt-get

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve typed:

1
2
$ apt-get search git
E: Invalid operation search

unlike brew search, gem search, npm search and every other packaging, APT decided to use a different prefix:

1
apt-cache search git

I’m not even going to ask why git is under git-core.
