pkg info - display information for packages


pkg info pkg-name pkg info -a pkg info [-ABbDdefIklOpqRrs] [-Cgix] pkg-name pkg info [-ABbDdfIlpqRrs] -F pkg-file pkg info pkg-name pkg info --all pkg info [--{annotations,provided-shlibs,required-shlibs}] [--{pkg-message,dependencies,exists,full,comment,locked}] [--{list-files,by-origin,quiet,prefix,raw,required-by,size}] [--{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex}] pkg-name pkg info [--{annotations,provided-shlibs,required-shlibs}] [--{pkg-message,dependencies,full,comment,list-files}] [--{quiet,prefix,raw,required-by,size}] --file pkg-file [--raw-format format]


pkg info is used for displaying information for packages.


The following options are supported by pkg info: -A, --annotations Display any annotations added to the package. -a, --all Display all installed packages. -B, --required-shlibs Display all shared libraries used by pkg-name. -b, --provided-shlibs Display all shared libraries provided by pkg-name. -C, --case-sensitive Make the standard or the regular expression (-x) matching against pkg-name case sensitive. -D, --pkg-message Show the pkg-message for matching packages. -d, --dependencies Display the list of packages on which pkg-name depends. -E, --show-name-only Hides the full package output and only shows the package name. This option is deprecated and exists only for Ports compatibility. -e, --exists If pkg-name is installed and registered in the database, return 0, otherwise return 1. Useful for checking whether the package is installed. -F pkg-file, --file pkg-file Displays information from the package archive pkg-file. -f, --full Display full information about the packages matching pkg-name. This is the default. -g, --glob Treat pkg-name as a shell glob pattern. -I, --comment Display the specified packages and their comments. -i, --case-insensitive Make the standard or the regular expression (-x) matching against pkg-name case insensitive. This is the default, unless modified by setting CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH to true in pkg.conf. -k, --locked Show the locking status for pkg-name. When used in combination with -d or -r, indicate which packages, dependencies or requirements are locked by '(*)'. Locking status is only meaningful for installed packages; all locking statuses will show as unlocked when information about a pkg-file is queried. -l, --list-files Display all files installed by pkg-name. -O, --by-origin Search is done by the pkg-name origin. Added only for Ports compatibility. -o, --origin Display pkg-name origin. -p, --prefix Display the installation prefix for each package matching pkg-name. -q, --quiet Be "quiet". Prints only the requested information without displaying many hints. -R, --raw Display the full manifest (raw) for the packages matching pkg-name. -r, --required-by Display the list of packages which require pkg-name. --raw-format format Choose the format of the raw output. The format can be: ucl (default), json, json-compact, yaml. -s, --size Display the total size of files installed by pkg-name. -x, --regex Treat pkg-name as a regular expression according to the "modern" or "extended" syntax of re_format(7).
