I wondered why your new friend lua could not also do it.

E.g. to make a list of packages whose names start with liblua5.1
you can paste the following into a bash shell:

aptitude search liblua5.1 | 
 lua -e "print(table.concat((
 function () t={}; 
 for i in io.lines() do 
 end return t end)(),' '))"
