SYNOPSIS

xps [options] terms

DESCRIPTION

xps is a tool that searches the ports INDEX file and prints all ports whose names contain the given terms and match the specified criterias.

The default mode prints a line for each port found. The brackets in the beginning of each line show the port’s status:
’i’ the port is installed
’u’ the port is installed and can be updated

EXAMPLES

Show all ports whose names contain ’firefox’ and print verbose descriptions:
xps -v firefox
Show all ports in category ’devel’ with exact name ’python’.
xps -e -c devel python
Show all ports whose names contain ’glib’ and are installed:
xps -i yes glib
Show all ports maintained by <author> in category <category>:
xps -m <author> -c <category>
Show all ports that contain ’pdf’ in thier short description:
xps -D pdf
Show ports whose name starts with ’gnome’:
xps -E ’^gnome’

OPTIONS

-c <category> Show ports only from this category.
-e Exact match. Show only ports that their name is an exact match of the given term.
-i yes/no Show only installed/non-installed ports.
-u yes/no Show ports that are installed and can/cannot be updated.
-m <maintainer> Show only ports maintained by <maintainer>.
-v Show verbose descriptions.
-E <regex> Show ports that thier name matches given regular expression.
-D <string> Show ports whose short description contain given string.
-DE <regex> Show ports whose short description match given regular expression.
-s Print port statistics and exit.
--version Show program version and exit.

BUGS

* The code that matches installed packages with indexed ports needs a lot of work, expect bugs in this area.

* xps is broken in systems migrated to pkgng. Expect this to be solved in a newer version.
