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

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

SYNOPSIS
     pkg clean [-anqy]

     pkg clean [--{all,dry-run,quiet,yes}]

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  It removes packages that have been superseded by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, --all
	 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 disap-
	 pointing for any other	user.

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

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	 ing any out of	date or	redundant packages from	the cache.

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