PKG-CLEAN(8)            FreeBSD System Manager's Manual           PKG-CLEAN(8)

NAME
     pkg clean - clean the local cache of fetched remote packages

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  It removes packages that have been superseded by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         deleting any out of date or redundant packages from the cache.

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