NAME

portfind - find ports with detailed and short view

CONTENTS

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
