Re: whereis code for telnet?

> Where do I find the code for telnet?

If telnet is a part of your debian system you can type

# grep -n ´Package: telnet´ /var/lib/dpkg/available

to find the position of this package in your available list. If you then
edit this file with

# vi +<number> /var/lib/dpkg/available

and source package has another name then the deb file, you will find there a
line beginning with : Source : ........
Then you know the name of the source package.

If it´s not on you available list you can look at www.freshmeat.net and
www.tuxfinder.com to search in these great databases.
