pkg clean - clean the local cache of fetched remote packages


pkg clean [-anqy] pkg clean [--{all,dry-run,quiet,yes}]


pkg clean is used to cleanup the local cache of packages downloaded from remote repositories. It removes packages that have been superseded by newer versions, and any packages that are no longer provided.


The following options are supported by pkg clean: -a, --all Delete all cached packages including those, which have not been superseded by newer versions yet and are still in use. -n, --dry-run Do not delete any package files from the cache, but show what would be done instead. Forces the preview of the packages that would be deleted to be shown, even when used with -y. Note: the package cache file permissions only permit root access. Results will be disappointing for any other user. -q, --quiet Be quiet. Suppress most output. All output is suppressed if -y is also used. -y, --yes Assume a yes answer instead of asking for confirmation before deleting any out of date or redundant packages from the cache.


The following environment variables affect the execution of pkg clean. See pkg.conf(5) for further description. DEFAULT_ALWAYS_YES ASSUME_ALWAYS_YES PKG_DBDIR PKG_CONFIG_CACHEDIR


See pkg.conf(5).
