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

NAME
     pkg fetch -- fetch	remote packages

SYNOPSIS
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-dqUy] [-Cgix] pkg-name [...]
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-o destdir] [-dqUy] -a
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-dqUy] -u

     pkg fetch [--repository reponame] [--output destdir]
	 [--{dependencies,quiet,no-repo-update,yes}]
	 [--{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex}] pkg-name [...]
     pkg fetch [--repository reponame]
	 [--{dependencies,quiet,no-repo-update,yes}] --all
     pkg fetch [--repository reponame]
	 [--{dependencies,quiet,no-repo-update,yes}] --available-updates

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

     One or more packages, or patterns can be specified.

     Package repository	catalogues will	be automatically updated whenever pkg
     fetch is run by a user ID with write access to the	package	database, un-
     less disabled by the -U flag or setting REPO_AUTOUPDATE to	NO in
     pkg.conf(5).

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg	fetch:

     -a, --all	   Fetch all packages.

     -o	destdir, --output destdir
		   Place files in a sub-directory called All of	the specified
		   directory.  In this mode, packages are fetched for distri-
		   bution instead of placing them into the internal cache.

     -C, --case-sensitive
		   Make	the standard or	the regular expression (-x) matching
		   against pkg-name case sensitive.

     -d, --dependencies
		   Fetch the package and its dependencies as well.

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

     -i, --case-insensitive
		   Make	the standard or	regular	expression (-x)	matching
		   against pkg-name case insensitive.  This is the default,
		   unless modified by setting CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH to true in
		   pkg.conf.

     -q, --quiet   Quiet mode.	Show less output.

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

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

     -U, --no-repo-update
		   Suppress the	automatic update of the	local copy of the
		   repository catalogue	from remote.  Automatic	repository
		   catalogue updates are only attempted	when the effective UID
		   of the process has write access to the package database.
		   Otherwise they are silently ignored.

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

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

ENVIRONMENT
     The following environment variables affect	the execution of pkg fetch:

     PKG_DBDIR

     CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH

     See pkg.conf(5) for additional environment	variables that control behav-
     iour.

FILES
     See pkg.conf(5).
