PKG-CLEAN(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		  PKG-CLEAN(8)

NAME
     pkg clean -- Cleans the local cache of fetched remote packages.

SYNOPSIS
     pkg clean [-anqy]

DESCRIPTION
     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  It removes packages that have been superseded by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.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg	clean:

     -a	 Delete	all cached packages.

     -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	 Be quiet.  Suppress most output.  All output is suppressed if -y is
	 also used.

     -y	 Assume	a yes answer instead of	asking for confirmation	before delet-
	 ing any out-of-date or	redundant packages from	the cache.

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variables affect	the execution of pkg clean.
     See pkg.conf(5) for further description.

     ASSUME_ALWAYS_YES

     PKG_DBDIR

     PKG_CONFIG_CACHEDIR

FILES
     See pkg.conf(5).
