For ubuntu or debian, for installed package, I can use dpkg -L package to view where files were installed by the package. For a package is going to be installed but yet installed, how can I foresee these information?

apt-file list $P

List the contents of a package matching the pattern pattern. This action is very close to the dpkg -L command except the package does not need to be installed or fetched
