Feisty feature of the day #33 - Clever Terminal

So you're following a how-to on the Internet (like I was this morning) and type a command into the Terminal. Whoops! You don't have that program installed on your system. So now you've got to click around Google for a few minutes trying to find out which package provides that command. Bugger.

Why not let Feisty worry about that for you?

The Terminal knows which package each command is found in

That's right folks, the terminal knows which package you should install to make a particular command available. I can't see this feature being massively useful, but it's pretty cool and anything which improves the usability of the terminal gets my vote.

Edit: Looks like this is in Edgy too. Must pay more attention!
