what result should the following command display

An empty line means apt-file found no hits; otherwise, each line will
have the package name followed by the file name that matched.
Now, when I run the command as you show, this is what I see:
cerdea@xango2:/build/buildd/weechat$ apt-file search X11/Xlib.h
So I guess you do not have the necessary repositories in your
/etc/apt/sources.list. 'apt-file' uses the repositories specified
there to search.
Anyway What is use of the command " apt-file search "
and what is it supposed to display as output in case command is
successful and in case command fails???????????
apt-file search <pattern>
<pattern> is a regular expression.
Please also note that 'man apt-file' will explain this command in more
