How do I find out which package an app is in?

I use pdftest. It's in the poppler package in Slackware, but not in CentOS. I don't know CentOS.

It may not be in CentOS. The way to find what package provides a program is to use the provides option. I have a little page on it at http://srobb.net/yumprovides.html, but the basically all you do is

yum provides */pdftest

(Trying on CentOS-8, it looks as if it isn't available.)

If you have something already installed, e.g., poppler, you can also do

rpm -ql poppler
which will show all the files provided by the poppler package.t

pdftotext is in the poppler-utils package.
