NAME
     pkg fetch - fetch remote packages

SYNOPSIS
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-dqUy] [-Cgix] pkg-name [...]
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-o destdir] [-dqUy] -a
     pkg fetch [-r reponame] [-dqUy] -u

     pkg fetch [--repository reponame] [--output destdir]
               [--{dependencies,quiet,no-repo-update,yes}]
               [--{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex}] pkg-name [...]
     pkg fetch [--repository reponame]
               [--{dependencies,quiet,no-repo-update,yes}] --all
     pkg fetch [--repository reponame]
               [--{dependencies,quiet,no-repo-update,yes}] --available-updates

DESCRIPTION
     pkg fetch is used to download binary packages from a remote repository.

     One or more packages, or patterns can be specified.

     Package repository catalogues will be automatically updated whenever pkg
     fetch is run by a user ID with write access to the package database,
     unless disabled by the -U flag or setting REPO_AUTOUPDATE to NO in
     pkg.conf(5).

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg fetch:

     -a, --all     Fetch all packages.

     -o destdir, --output destdir
                   Place files in a sub-directory called All of the specified
                   directory.  In this mode, packages are fetched for
                   distribution instead of placing them into the internal
                   cache.

     -C, --case-sensitive
                   Make the standard or the regular expression (-x) matching
                   against pkg-name case sensitive.

     -d, --dependencies
                   Fetch the package and its dependencies as well.

     -g, --glob    Treat pkg-name as a shell glob pattern.

     -i, --case-insensitive
                   Make the standard or 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.

     -q, --quiet   Quiet mode.  Show less output.

     -r reponame, --repository reponame
                   Fetches packages from the given reponame if multiple repo
                   support is enabled.  See pkg.conf(5).

     -u, --available-updates
                   Fetch all available updates for the currently installed
                   packages.

     -U, --no-repo-update
                   Suppress the automatic update of the local copy of the
                   repository catalogue from remote.  Automatic repository
                   catalogue updates are only attempted when the effective UID
                   of the process has write access to the package database.
                   Otherwise they are silently ignored.

     -x, --regex   Treat pkg-name as a regular expression according to the
                   "modern" or "extended" syntax of re_format(7).

     -y, --yes     Assume yes when asked for confirmation before fetching
                   packages.
