Just a basic question on this utility... I did
sudo apt-get install libhtmlparser-java
And I would like to see the source I just downloaded. On Linux (Ubuntu) where ought I look for this?
"apt-get install" installs compiled packages, not source. To see exactly what files were installed (and where they went), make sure your /etc/apt/sources.list has the "deb-src" equivalent entries for all of your "deb" entries (for the default entries you start with, this will be a matter of uncommenting the deb-src entries, if I recall correctly) and:
As Matthew Flaschen notes above, you can get the source with "apt-get source", but that's like a wget -- it just puts it in your current directory. When I do this, I put it in /usr/local/src.
Edited: I should note that for installed packages, dpkg -L packagename will get you the list of files. You'd want apt-file to be able to list the files in uninstalled packages, or to search packages for a given file.
