DESCRIPTION
     pkg rquery is used for displaying information about remote packages.

     Package repository catalogues will be automatically updated whenever pkg
     rquery 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 rquery:

     -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.

     -I, --index-line
                 Print out the corresponding line from the ports INDEX file
                 for each matched package.  This option is a shorthand
                 <query-format> argument.  Only the first query format
                 (including the -I option) on the command line will be
                 interpreted.

     -r reponame, --repository reponame
                 Query for data about packages from only the named repository,
                 irrespective of the configured ``active'' status from
                 repo.conf.  By default all repository catalogues marked
                 ``active'' are queried.

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

     -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 <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:
     %R  Name of the repository package is in

     %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

     %q  Architecture of the matched package

     %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.

     %M  message contained in the matched package

     %?[drCOLBbA]
         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

         O       for options

         L       for licenses

         B       for required shared libraries

         b       for provided shared libraries

         A       for annotations

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

                 d       for dependencies

                 r       for reverse dependencies

                 C       for categories

                 O       for options

                 L       for licenses

                 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.

     %O[kvdD]
         Expands to the list of options of the matched package, where k stands
         for option key v for option value, d for option default value, and D
         for option description.  Option default values and descriptions are
         optional metadata and may be blank for certain packages or
         repositories.

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

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

         package.

         Expands to the list of annotations associated with the matched
         package, where t stands for the annotation tag, and v stands for the
         annotation value.
