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 differs 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 unquoted globbing meta-character ( '*', '?', or '[' ). Used together 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 directory (i.e. category/portname ) to stdout.

.Lp 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).
