I'm trying to fix a problem with my webcam in Wheezy, and I need some information about the drive with the command udevinfo. The problem is: where is this executable?

if I run sudo udevinfo the result is:

udevinfo: command not found

Any suggestion?

Debian web infrastructure supports searching packages by their contents.

The same result can be achieved using the apt-file tool.

Update: I was too confident you just don't know how to find a relevant package. In fact, this tool really was replaced by udevadm info as this post explains.
