SYNOPSIS

pkg clean [-anqy]

pkg clean [--{all,dry-run,quiet,yes}]

DESCRIPTION

pkg clean is used to cleanup the local cache of packages downloaded from remote repositories. It removes packages that have been superseded by newer versions, and any packages that are no longer provided.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported by pkg clean:
-a -, --all
  Delete all cached packages.
-n -, --dry-run
  Do not delete any package files from the cache, but show what would be done instead. Forces the preview of the packages that would be deleted to be shown, even when used with -y . Note: the package cache file permissions only permit root access. Results will be disappointing for any other user.
-q -, --quiet
  Be quiet. Suppress most output. All output is suppressed if -y is also used.
-y -, --yes
  Assume a yes answer instead of asking for confirmation before deleting any out of date or redundant packages from the cache.

ENVIRONMENT

The following environment variables affect the execution of pkg clean. See pkg.conf(5) for further description.
DEFAULT_ALWAYS_YES
ASSUME_ALWAYS_YES
PKG_DBDIR
PKG_CONFIG_CACHEDIR
 

FILES

See pkg.conf(5).
