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

NAME
     pkg shell -- interact with	the pkg	database

SYNOPSIS
     pkg shell

DESCRIPTION
     pkg shell is used to interact with	the local or remote database through a
     sqlite3 console.  Extreme care should be taken when using this command.

     Do	not rely on this command.  The underlying schema is subject to change
     on	any release.  Use pkg-query(8),	pkg-rquery(8), pkg-search(8) and
     pkg-set(8)	instead	for querying and modiying the database.	 These com-
     mands are expected	to have	a stable API, unlike the database schema.

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

     PKG_DBDIR

FILES
     See pkg.conf(5).
