How do I find a package to install?

Sometimes, package names may not be as descriptive as they could be. As an example, consider GNU make. For OS/2, this is actually kbuild-make. The best way to find this from ANPM is:

Find | File…(or click the Find package by included filename button)

In the dialog box, enter:


Click OK.

Note that kbuild-make is displayed in the search results.

Another way would be to search for package names containing “make”:

Find | Package… (or click the Find package by name button)


Click OK.

This may produce more results than desired, but selecting one of the packages in the search results and then:

Selected | Cotents… (or click the View package contents button)

should reveal more information.
