Not totally sure what your point is. I have many times did apt-get, aptitude
and wajig updates, upgrades, dist-upgrades, installs, removes and purges. I'm certainly no Debian linux expert, if anyone is. I don't know what "regex" is
unless it means regular expresson. apt-cache search didn't find it. You may be
telling me that I can download and install a package with "aptitude -d install
$package name". but I don't know what that Package Name is unless I see it in
a cache file or somewheres. I'm willing to be enlightened as after 2 yrs with
Debian linux I'm just beginning to know that I don't know anything about it.
So go ahead fire away and enlighten me. I usually learn something everytime I
post or read the list.
