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

NAME
     pkg fetch - Fetches remote packages.

SYNOPSIS
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-dgiqUxy] pkg-name [...]
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-dqUy] -a
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-dqUy] -u

DESCRIPTION
     pkg fetch is used to download binary packages from a remote repository.

     One or more packages, or patterns can be specified.

     Repository catalogues will be updated automatically using pkg-update(8).
     This can be disabled with the -U flag.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg fetch:

     -a  Fetch all packages.

     -d  Fetch the package and its dependencies as well.

     -g  Treat pkg-name as a shell glob pattern.

     -i  Make the standard or regular expression (-x) matching against
         pkg-name case insensitive.

     -q  Quiet mode.  Show less output.

     -r reponame
         Fetches packages from the given reponame if multiple repo support is
         enabled.  See pkg.conf(5).

     -u  Fetch all available updates for the currently installed packages.

     -U  Skip updating the repository catalogues with pkg-update(8).  Use the
         local cache only.

     -x  Treat pkg-name as a regular expression according to the "modern" or
         "extended" syntax of re_format(7).

     -y  Assume yes when asked for confirmation before fetching packages.

     The following environment variables affect the execution of pkg fetch:

     PKG_DBDIR

     See pkg.conf(5) for additional environment variables that control
     behaviour.
