Hi, a few months back, I notice that my friend is using some command line plugin, giving hints and suggestion in the terminal. Like, sudo apt-get install <...> where it will get some recommended software. Where can I get those plugins, so that I won't have to remember every command parameters?

I dont know about any plugins. But you can get the suggestions by pressing <tab> twice after entering few letters. It gives all the available options starting with the entered letters.

It's called tab-completion in case you want to show it off. It's really useful and if people don't know about it, they think you type really fast.
