dglob - Expand package names or files matching a pattern


dglob [-a] pattern

dglob [-0] -f pattern


dglob lists packages names matching a pattern. It can also list all the files they
contain. By default dglob only searches installed packages; the -a and -n switch widens
the search (see "OPTIONS"). The list is written to stdout, one name per line.

grep-dctrl(1) and grep-aptavail(1) are used to search the list of packages, so you should
refer to its documentation for information on how patterns are matched. By default, all
packages whose name contains the given string will be matched, but several options are
available to modify this behavior (see "OPTIONS").

If you use dglob with the -f option, all files in the matched packages are listed instead
of their names. If you do not use de -a switch, only existing, plain (i.e. no symlinks,
directories or other special ones) files are listed. If the -a switch is use then all
files will be listed both for installed and non-installed packages. The filenames are
written to stdout, one file per line. You can use the -0 option to get the filenames
separated by '\0' instead of a newline.


dglob supports the following options:

-a Search through all available packages, not just installed ones. If set,
grep-aptavail(1) is used.

-n Search through all the available packages but not including installed ones. If set,
grep-aptavail(1) is used.

-f List all files in the matched packages. By default, this lists only installed (i.e.
locally existing) files from installed packages. If used together with -a then it will
list all files both of installed and non-installed packages by mean of apt-file(1). If
apt-file is not installed, using -f together with -a is rather pointless.

-0 When listing files (with -f) use '\0' as a separator instead of a newline. When
specified without -f, this options does nothing.

-r, -e, -i, -X, -v
These options are passed directly to grep-dctrl(1) or to grep-aptavail(1) to modify
how the pattern is matched. See grep-dctrl(1).
