Installing package *NOT* in repository

I've downloaded a .deb file.
I've recently done such an install but don't remember how.
Looking at the man pages for apt, apt-get, aptitude didn't help.
Couldn't come up with useful search term for wiki.
Eventually recalled "dpkg -i" which worked.

How would someone find the answer if the answer wasn't already known?
I went thru the same sequence last time.
