I don't know what you mean.  You can get the list of files included in
an installed package with dpkg -L.  You can get the list of files for
an arbitrary package (not necessary installed) using p.d.o (presently
unavailable), apt-file, or just by zgrepping the Contents.gz file.

Installed packages aren't guaranteed to have .debs anywhere on the
hard drive, although apt does keep a cache:


PS.  Why is your message titled "submission" ??

     Also, this message doesn't (I don't think) have anything to do
     with learning to build debian packages, and so this is the wrong
