            Bug ID: 256376
           Summary: pkg-add man page doesn't explain usage with -j
           Product: Documentation
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Manual Pages
          Assignee: bugs_at_FreeBSD.org

I've tried installing a package with a command like:

    # pkg -j $jailname add $package_path

However, it didn't work because I was specifying a host path, instead of a
jail path.

In my opinion, it would be a good idea to mention -j flag in the man page,
like so:

    When pkg -j flag is used, a package from a local source is searched for in
    jail's filesystem.
