Searching Freshmeat

New in the code section: fm, a tool like Debian’s apt-cache which searches the Freshmeat repository. Some pretty brief Python code.

Commands: search - Searches Freshmeat for packages matching word show - Shows full details for package pkg get - Downloads a tar.gz for package pkg if such exists Options: -h - show this help text ——-
