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

NAME
     pkg check -- sanity check installed packages

SYNOPSIS
     pkg check [-Bdsr] [-nqvy] [-a | -Cgix pattern]

     pkg check [--{shlibs,dependencies,checksums,recompute}]
	 [--{dry-run,quiet,verbose,yes}]
	 [--all	| --{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex} pattern]

DESCRIPTION
     pkg check -B or pkg check --shlibs	regenerates the	library	dependency
     metadata for a package by extracting library requirement information from
     the binary	ELF files in the package.

     pkg check -d or pkg check --dependencies checks for and installs missing
     dependencies.

     pkg check -r or pkg check --recompute recalculates	and sets the checksums
     of	installed packages.  This command should only be used when the admin-
     istrator has made modifications that invalidate a package checksum.
     Spontaneous checksum problems can indicate	data or	security problems.

     pkg check -s or pkg check --checksums detects installed packages with
     invalid checksums.	 An invalid checksum can be caused by data corruption
     or	tampering.

OPTIONS
     These options are supported by pkg	check:

     -a, --all	   Process all packages.

     -C, --case-sensitive
		   Use case sensitive standard or regular expression (-x)
		   matching with pattern.

     -g, --glob	   Treat pattern as a shell glob pattern.

     -i, --case-insensitive
		   Use case insensitive	standard or regular expression (-x)
		   matching with pattern.  This	is the default unless
		   CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH	has been set to	true in	pkg.conf.

     -n, --dry-run
		   Only	check for missing dependencies,	do not install them.

     -v, --verbose
		   Be verbose.

     -q, --quiet   Suppress most output, except	for error messages and data
		   that	the command explicitly requests.  This is primarily
		   intended for	scripting use.

     -x, --regex   Treat pattern as a regular expression, using	the "modern"
		   or "extended" syntax	described in re_format(7).

     -y, --yes	   Assume "yes"	when asked for confirmation before installing
		   missing dependencies.

ENVIRONMENT
     These environment variables affect	the execution of pkg check.  See
     pkg.conf(5) for additional	information.

     PKG_DBDIR

     CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH

FILES
     See pkg.conf(5).

EXAMPLES
     Regenerate	the library dependency metadata	of all installed packages from
     the library information in	each package's binary ELF files:

	   pkg check -Ba

     Test for missing dependencies needed by nano, installing any that are
     missing:

	   pkg check -d	nano

     Test the checksums	of all installed packages to make sure none are	cor-
     rupted:

	   pkg check -sa
