I'm constantly finding myself wishing for this feature -
something of the "apropos"/"whatis" of the linux shell (and debian's
"apt-cache search" and "apt-cache show" which allow you to search
and query before you install).
(Matlab's "help" and "lookfor" commands cover this too.)
Is there a reason this type of information hasn't been made available
by default in the help system?
I'm constantly using find, grep and Usenet to find out what python tools
I can use.
