The grep-dctrl program can answer many questions regarding Debian packages, given a useful input file. It is most useful as part of a Debian system, although there are meaningful uses for it in other systems as well. The program allows the user to search for all package records that match a search pattern and output the matching records or selected fields of them. As the program is a filter, it can usefully work together with standard Unixish tools. Nowadays, this is part of the dctrl-tools suite.
