DESCRIPTION

pkg info is used for displaying information for packages.

OPTIONS

The following options are supported by pkg info:
-a -, --all
  Display all installed packages.
-A -, --annotations
  Display any annotations added to the package.
-C -, --case-sensitive
  Make the standard or the regular expression -( -x ) matching against pkg-name case sensitive.
-f -, --full
  Display full information about the packages matching pkg-name. This is the default.
-R -, --raw
  Display the full manifest (raw) for the packages matching pkg-name.
--raw-format format
  Choose the format of the raw output. The format can be: json, json-compact, yaml (default).
-e -, --exists
  If pkg-name is installed and registered in the database, return 0, otherwise return 1. Useful for checking whether the package is installed.
-D -, --pkg-message
  Show the pkg-message for matching packages.
-g -, --glob
  Treat pkg-name as a shell glob pattern.
-i -, --case-insensitive
  Make the standard or the regular expression -( -x ) matching against pkg-name case insensitive. This is the default, unless modified by setting CASE_SENSITIVE_MATCH to true in pkg.conf.
-I -, --comment
  Display the specified packages and their comments.
-x -, --regex
  Treat pkg-name as a regular expression according to the "modern" or "extended" syntax of re_format(7).
-d -, --dependencies
  Display the list of packages on which pkg-name depends.
-r -, --required-by
  Display the list of packages which require pkg-name.
-k -, --locked
  Show the locking status for pkg-name. When used in combination with -d or -r , indicate which packages, dependencies or requirements are locked by ’(*)’. Locking status is only meaningful for installed packages; all locking statuses will show as unlocked when information about a pkg-file is queried.
-l -, --list-files
  Display all files installed by pkg-name.
-b -, --provided-shlibs
  Display all shared libraries provided by pkg-name.
-B -, --required-shlibs
  Display all shared libraries used by pkg-name.
-s -, --size
  Display the total size of files installed by pkg-name.
-q -, --quiet
  Be "quiet". Prints only the requested information without displaying many hints.
-O -, --by-origin
  Search is done by the pkg-name origin. Added only for Ports compatibility.

-E -, --show-name-only
  Hides the full package output and only shows the package name. This option is deprecated and exists only for Ports compatibility.
-o -, --origin
  Display pkg-name origin.
-p -, --prefix
  Display the installation prefix for each package matching pkg-name.
-F pkg-file, --file pkg-file
  Displays information from the package archive pkg-file.
