SYNOPSIS

portconfig [-vafrRh] [-tN] [ports]

DESCRIPTION

The portconfig script was written to issue make targets to a number of ports instead of going into every ports folder and running the command by hand. The make target issued is determined from the scriptname minus the ’port’ prefix. Different targets can be realized by creating links.

The following aliases are available:
Fr portconfig portbuild portclean portfetch portpackage
  portconfig-recursive portfetch-recursive

OPTIONS

The following options are available:
-v --verbose
  Be verbose.
-a --all
  Act on all ports that require updating. Or on all installed ports if -f is given.
-f --force
  Also acts on ports that do not require updating and ports that are not yet installed.
-r --recursive
  Act on depending ports as well.
-R --upward-recursive
  Act on ports the given ports depend on as well.
-tN --try-againN
  If the target returns an error try again for N times. N is a value from 0 to 9.
-h --help
  Displays the available options.
ports The last parameter is a list of ports to act on, either in the category/port format or the package name of an installed package.

EXAMPLES

If you want to see the config dialogues of all ports that require updating prior to running ’portupgrade -a’ the following line will achieve this:
portconfig -a

If you want to see the config dialogues of new dependencies as well run the following command:

portconfig-recursive -a

EXIT CODES

1 An unknown parameter has been supplied.
2 The parameter -t has been supplied without a number.

COMPATIBILITY

The script has been tested on FreeBSD 7.2-PRERELEASE.
