PORTFIND(1)		  Search the ports collection		   PORTFIND(1)

NAME
       portfind	-    find ports	with detailed and short	view

SYNOPSIS
       portfind	[-a] [-d] [-p] [-m] [-D] [-f] [-n] [-r]	[-h] [-v] search_word

DESCRIPTION
       portfind	finds ports by name (default). It is able to search in other
       fields than name	(see OPTIONS). It also looks if	a port is already
       installed and tells the user the	installed version number.

       portfind	uses /usr/ports/INDEX-X	(X stands for the version) and
       /var/db/pkg. Please be sure, you	updated	your index file	(cd to
       /usr/ports and do make index) after every port sync.

OPTIONS
       Without options	   the search only matches the name of the ports
       -a		   Search in all fields
       -d		   Search in name and in description
       -p		   Search in name and in path
       -m		   Search in name and maintainer
       -D		   Search in name and dependencies
       -f		   Show	result with dependencies
       -n		   Show	normal version of results (short version is
       default)
       -r		   Show	result count
       -h		   Print this help text
       -v		   Print version number
