useful tools for packages--any comprehensive list?


from time to time people mentions some nifty tools (mostly scripts?)
to search for info about packages and similar.  Eg the citation
below.  Is there some list/collection/etc of such utilities?  Or for
other usefull things like `apt-cache search <string>', which can be
found in the manuals but is a bit tricky to find?

I couldn't find an easy way to find the biggest packages installed so
I hacked a script, but I suppose lots of these things are really done,
just I can't find it.
