Redhat rpm in Text Mode

I'm not sure of the apt syntax, but I can't quite convince myself that

apt get brltty

is that much easier or harder than

up2date brltty

up2date does require configuration. Yum doesn't, but

yum update brltty

is about three keystrokes longer which should incur the wrath of the
Arthritis Association...

If apt will handle both rpms ad debs and up2date and yum won't, then
apt is certainly the winner.
