• Take output of 「apt-cache show texlive-latex-extra」
• Replace all newlines with \x01
• Replace all “\x01\x20” with just a space (0x20)
• Replace all remaining \x01 back to newlines

⇒ this ensures all fields are one line only

• Sort that
• Display it with less, telling less to please not wrap lines

Is this explained enough?
