I'm trying to figure out where ports keep their dependency
information, and the best way to parse it? On a Linux rpm-based
system, I can do the following:
Linux RPM | FreeBSD Ports | Task
rpm -qa pkg_info
List all installed packages
rpm -ql <package> pkg_info -L <package> List
files in package
rpm -qf <file> pkg_which <file>
Which package does file belong to?
rpm -q --requires <package> ?
List dependencies of package
rpm -q --whatrequires <package> ?
Reverse-dependencies of package
If anyone has compiled this, it would help me out.
