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

NAME
     pkg info - displays information for packages

SYNOPSIS
     pkg info pkg-name
     pkg info -a
     pkg info [-AbBDdefgiIklOqRrsx] pkg-name
     pkg info [-AbBDdfIlqRrs] -F pkg-file

DESCRIPTION
     pkg info is used for displaying information for packages.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg info:

     -a  Display all installed packages.

     -A  Display any annotations added to the package.

     -f  Display full information about the packages matching pkg-name.

     -R  Display the full manifest (raw) about the packages matching pkg-name.

     -e  If pkg-name is installed and registered in the database, return 0,
         otherwise return 1.  Useful for checking whether the package is
         installed.

     -D  Show the pkg-message for matching packages.

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

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

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

     -d  Display the list of packages on which pkg-name depends.

     -r  Display the list of packages which require pkg-name.

     -k  Show the locking status for pkg-name.  When used in combination with
         -d or -r, indicate which packages, dependencies or requirements are
         locked by '(*)'.  Locking status is only meaningful for installed
         packages; all locking statuses will show as unlocked when information
         about a pkg-file is queried.

     -l  Display all files installed by pkg-name.

     -b  Display all shared libraries provided by pkg-name.

     -B  Display all shared libraries used by pkg-name.

     -s  Display the total size of files installed by pkg-name

     -q  Be ``quiet''.  Prints only the requested information without
         displaying many hints.

     -O  Search is done by the pkg-name origin.  Added only for Ports
         compatibility.

     -E  is a synonym for -q.  This option is deprecated and exists only for
         Ports compatibility.

     -o  Display pkg-name origin.

     -p  Display the installation prefix for each package matching pkg-name.

     -F pkg-file
         Displays information from the package archive pkg-file.
