Day 61: $ apt-get install

ODOC: apt-get  install <related package name> Installs software packages to Debian based package management system from Internet. Install is followed by one or more packages desired for installation. Each package is a package name, not a fully qualified filename (for instance, in a Debian GNU/Linux system, libc6 would be the argument provided, not libc6_1.9.6-2.deb). All packages required by the package(s) specified for installation will also be retrieved and installed.

Ex: 
bala@bala-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install vlc
