NAME

pkg_tree - Generate a graphical tree of packages and their dependencies

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

pkg_tree [-v] [package-prefix ...]

DESCRIPTION

This program generates a graphical tree of packages and their dependancies.

USAGE

To show the dependencies of all packages, run it without arguments:

[~] edwin@k7>pkg_tree

To show the dependencies of one package, run it with an argument:

[~] edwin@k7>pkg_tree linux-netscape
linux-netscape-navigator-4.79
|\__ netscape-remote-1.0_1
|\__ netscape-wrapper-2000.07.07
|\__ linux_base-6.1
|\__ imake-4.1.0 (unknown)
|\__ freetype2-2.0.5
\__ XFree86-libraries-4.1.0 (unknown)

To also show the dependencies of the dependencies, use the -v parameter:

[~] edwin@k7>pkg_tree -v linux-netscape
linux-netscape-navigator-4.79
|\__ netscape-remote-1.0_1
| |\__ imake-4.1.0 (unknown)
| |\__ freetype2-2.0.3 (unknown)
| \__ XFree86-libraries-4.1.0 (unknown)
|\__ netscape-wrapper-2000.07.07
| |\__ freetype2-2.0.3 (unknown)
| |\__ imake-4.1.0 (unknown)
| |\__ netscape-remote-1.0_1
| | |\__ imake-4.1.0 (unknown)
| | |\__ freetype2-2.0.3 (unknown)
| | \__ XFree86-libraries-4.1.0 (unknown)
| \__ XFree86-libraries-4.1.0 (unknown)
|\__ linux_base-6.1
|\__ imake-4.1.0 (unknown)
|\__ freetype2-2.0.5
\__ XFree86-libraries-4.1.0 (unknown)

Use the -t parameter to show only top level packages, and -b to show only bottom level packages. And -t -q together will give the list of top level packages without their dependencies, installing only these packages should install all currently installed packages.

RETURN VALUES

Always 0.

BUGS

Ports which have upgraded ports in their dependencies don’t show their dependencies anymore if the old port is deleted; it then prints (unknown).
