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  It removes packages that have been superseded by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
         deleting any out-of-date or redundant packages from the cache.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).
