PKG_RMLEAVES(1)		    General Commands Manual	       PKG_RMLEAVES(1)

NAME
       pkg_rmleaves - deinstall	'leaf' packages

SYNOPSIS
       pkg_rmleaves [-l] [-d] [-x] [-X]	[-k]

DESCRIPTION
       pkg_rmleaves  finds packages that are not required (depended on)	by any
       other installed package and lets	you decide (in a beautiful dialog  in-
       terface)	for each one if	you want to keep it or delete it.

       Once  the  packages marked for removal have been	deinstalled, you'll be
       asked if	you want to do another run to see packages  that  have	become
       'leaves'	now because you've deinstalled the package(s) that depended on
       them. In	every run you will be shown only packages that you haven't de-
       cided to	keep yet in a previous run.

       This  version  automatically  detects  if  you are using	the new	pkg(8)
       package management system (also known as	pkgng) or still	the old	 pkg_*
       tools.	It  works  with	 both package management systems, but may show
       more information	with the new pkg(8) system.

OPTIONS
       -l     List leaf	packages only, one per line, and don't	ask  for  any-
	      thing to be deinstalled.

       -d     Use dialog (the default)

       -x     Use Xdialog

       -X     Use Xdialog in high compatibility	mode
