NAME
     pkg query - query information for installed packages

SYNOPSIS
     pkg query <query-format> <pkg-name>

     pkg query [-a] <query-format>
     pkg query -F <pkg-file> <query-format>
     pkg query -e <evaluation-condition> <query-format>
     pkg query [-Cgix] <query-format> <pattern> <...>

     pkg query [--all] <query-format>
     pkg query --file <pkg-file> <query-format>
     pkg query --evaluate <evaluation-condition> <query-format>
     pkg query [--{case-sensitive,glob,case-insensitive,regex}]
               <query-format> <pattern> <...>

DESCRIPTION
     pkg query is used for displaying information about packages.

OPTIONS
     The following options are supported by pkg query:

     -a, --all
               Match all packages from the database

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

     -e, --evaluate
               Match packages using the given evaluation-condition. See
               EVALUATION FORMAT for details.

     -F pkg-file, --file pkg-file
               Display information only for the package file pkg-name

     -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.

     -g, --glob
               Treat <pattern> as a glob pattern.

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

QUERY FORMAT
     There are two types of keywords for the query format: the multiline and
     the normal one. Only one type of multiline pattern is accepted for a
     given query.

   Normal patterns:
     %n  Name of the matched package

     %v  Version of the matched package

     %o  Origin of the matched package

     %p  Prefix of the matched package

     %m  Maintainer of the matched package

     %c  Comment of the matched package

     %e  Description of the matched package

     %w  Home page of the matched package

     %V  Returns 0 if the package is not marked as "vital", and 1 is the
         package is marked "vital".

     %l  License logic of the matched package - nothing for single, & for AND,
         and | for OR

     %s[bh]
         The flat size of the matched package, where b is in bytes, and h is
         in human readable format.

     %a  Returns 1 if the matched package was automatically installed as a
         dependency of another package, 0 otherwise.  The package can be
         automatically removed via `pkg autoremove' when this flag is set and
         no other package depends on it.

     %Q  Alternative architecture of the matches package

     %q  Architecture of the matched package

     %k  Returns 1 if the matched package is locked against modification or
         deletion, 0 otherwise

     %M  message contained in the matched package

     %t  Timestamp that the package was installed

     %R  The name of the repository from which the package was installed if
         available, or ``unknown-repository'' otherwise.

     %?[drCFODLUGBbA]
         Returns 0 if the list is empty and 1 if the list has information to
         display

         d       for dependencies

         r       for reverse dependencies

         C       for categories

         F       for files

         O       for options

         D       for directories

         L       for licenses

         U       for users

         G       for groups

         B       for required shared libraries

         b       for provided shared libraries

         A       for annotations

     %#[drCFODLUGBbA]
         Returns the number of elements in the list

         d       for dependencies

         r       for reverse dependencies

         C       for categories

         F       for files

         O       for options

         D       for directories

         L       for licenses

         U       for users

         G       for groups

         b       for shared

         B       for required shared libraries

         b       for provided shared libraries

         A       for annotations

   Multiline patterns:
     %d[nov]
         Expands to the list of dependencies for the matched package, where n
         stands for the package name, o for the package origin, and v for the
         package version.

     %r[nov]
         Expands to the list of reverse dependencies for the matched package,
         where n stands for the package name, o for the package origin, and v
         for the package version.

     %C  Expands to the list of categories the matched package belongs to.

     %F[ps]

         for option description.  Option default values and descriptions are
         optional metadata and may be blank for certain packages.

     %L  Expands to the list of license(s) for the matched package.

     %U  Expands to the list of users needed by the matched package.

     %G  Expands to the list of groups needed by the matched package.

     %B  Expands to the list of shared libraries used by programs from the
         matched package.

     %b  Expands to the list of shared libraries provided by the matched
         package.

     %A[tv]
         Expands to the list of annotations for the matched package, where t
         stands for the annotation tag, and v stands for the annotation value.

EVALUATION FORMAT
     Packages can be selected by using expressions comparing Variables (see
     below) to string or integer values. The mode of comparison is specified
     by the Operator (also listed below).  Expressions can be combined using
     && (for and) and || (for or).  Parentheses can be used for grouping in
     the usual manner.

     String values are either any text not containing whitespace (possibly
     followed by but not including whitespace) or any text enclosed in single
     or double quotes.

   Variables
     %n  Name of the package (type string)

     %o  Origin of the package (type string)

     %p  Prefix of the package (type string)

     %m  Maintainer of the package (type string)

     %c  Comment of the package (type string)

     %e  Description of the package (type string)

     %w  WWW address of the package (type string)

     %s  Flatsize of the package (type integer)

         above for what information is used.
