is there way to get list of the depend package as we used rospack depend, for catkin?

k-okada@kokada-t430s:/opt/ros/hydro/share/roslang$ rospack depends roslanag
[rospack] Error: no such package roslanag
k-okada@kokada-t430s:/opt/ros/hydro/share/roslang$ rospack depends-on roslanag
[rospack] Warning: no such package roslanag


Original question is invalid, rospack depend should work.

$ rospack depends roslang

the roslanag package does not exist. There is roslang package without 'a' in /opt/ros/hydro/share/,is this the one you are looking for? if it is ,you can try "rospack depends roslang"

no, I'd like to find roslang depends on these two package, (sorry that using roslang is not a good example) <run_depend>catkin</run_depend> <run_depend>genmsg</run_depend>

As the answer suggests `rospack depends roslang` will output the dependencies of the `roslang` package: `catkin` and `genmsg`

it works, I was confused when I pose original question. maybe forget to source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash or something. I'm very sorry to bother you.

No worries - that is what this platform is all about. And in the future someone else might find the question and answer helpful.
