PORTLESS(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		   PORTLESS(1)

NAME
     portless -- quickly browse	port descriptions

SYNOPSIS
     portless [-dfIiMmp] [-gG 'pattern'] [-P pager] portglob...
     portless [-IWw] [-gG 'pattern'] portglob...

DESCRIPTION
     portless lets FreeBSD users quickly browse	port descriptions given	the
     port's name or a (shell type) glob.

     The options are as	follows:

     -d	       Display the pkg-descr file of the port. This is the default.

     -f	       Take the	portglob argument literal (not as a shell glob).

     -gG 'pattern'
	       Filter the list of selected files with grep(1) .	Option -G dif-
	       fers from -g only by using fgrep	rather than grep.

     -I	       Ignore case when	matching portglob against the ports tree. This
	       option is only effective	if portglob contains at	least one un-
	       quoted globbing meta-character (	`*', `?', or `[' ). Used to-
	       gether with -g it also greps case insensitively.

     -i	       Display the distinfo file of the	port.

     -M	       Display the Makefile file of the	port.

     -m	       Display the pkg-message file of the port.

     -p	       Display the pkg-plist file of the port.

     -P	pager  Use the specified pager program to display matching files. This
	       overrides the setting of	the PAGER environment variable.

     -w	       Rather than browsing files inside the ports tree	just echo the
	       names of	directories matching portglob to stdout.

     -W	       Like -w but echoes just the last	two components of the direc-
	       tory (i.e. category/portname ) to stdout.

     Options -W	and -w are incompatible	with all other options.

ENVIRONMENT
     The portless command uses the following environment variables:
	   PAGER	defaults to "less -e"
	   PORTSDIR	defaults to /usr/ports

FILES
     /usr/ports/*/*/*

EXAMPLES
     The following are examples	of typical usage of the	portless command:

	   portless cvsweb\*
	   portless lang/\*doc
	   portless 'www/*python*'

SEE ALSO
     The ports_glob(1) command (part of	the ports-mgmt/portupgrade port),
     grep(1).
