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

NAME
     pkg shell - interact with the pkg database

SYNOPSIS
     pkg shell

DESCRIPTION
     pkg shell is used to interact with the local or remote database through a
     sqlite3 console.  Extreme care should be taken when using this command.

     Do not rely on this command.  The underlying schema is subject to change
     on any release.  Use pkg-query(8), pkg-rquery(8), pkg-search(8) and
     pkg-set(8) instead for querying and modiying the database.  These
     commands are expected to have a stable API, unlike the database schema.

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

     PKG_DBDIR

FILES
     See pkg.conf(5).
