Installing only needed packages

Sometimes you want to install software, but it pulls quite a lot of dependencies which are not really needed, in order to not install them you need to add some text, for example we need only and only libreoffice writer so we type this:
apt-get --no-install-recommends install libreoffice-writer
It will install only writer and packages which are really needed, if you would have used full command, you would have ended up with whole libreoffice packages.
