Okay good to know, thanks.
Using grep & la will do like a smart search in other terms.
Cool!
It'll be sufficient waiting sol package manager.

Is there any equivalent to "apt-cache madison <package_name>" with eopkg? which basically translates to searching what versions of a package are available to install and installing a specific version?
I'm trying to install a specific version of nodejs.

Did you try nvm? It's used specifically for that.

Why not change "eopkg" to "solus" would make a lot more sense and easier to use

There was a time Solus name was Evolve OS, thus the name eopkg.
A successor of eopkg is foreseen and it will be called sol (even easier & shorter), but as you can see in the to-do list, the road is still long before it's ready.

I haven't worked with Linux, but is it really that difficult to rename eopkg to sol?

There is no point in renaming a tool apart for generating confusion an breaking the scripts & other stuffs people might have done that call eopkg.

sol will be a brand new tool with new/different features.

If you find it more convenient, you can make a "sol" alias/symbolic link that points to eopkg. :)
