Documentation for qlist

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2022-02-08.

Is there any documentation for the things that qlist finds? There are a few forum posts but I couldn't find anything complete. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Garbanzo (talkcontribs)

Opps, yea that was me. Garbanzo (talk) 06:47, 14 May 2019 (UTC)

I generally tend to start with the man page: man 1 qlist. From DESCRIPTION section: "shows the contents, or a subset thereof, of an installed package." Hope this helps! --Maffblaster (talk) 22:40, 8 February 2022 (UTC)

qsearch --format arg

Talk status

Where can I find more info on the format string that qsearch --format takes ? There's none in the man page or --help

 -F, --format <arg> * Print matched atom using given format string

look at qatom(1) manpage for the -F argument.


Thank you. What I eventually wanted was to add the just-emerged kernel sources to world favorites (file /var/lib/portage/world) so I now do it by this:
   $ sudo emerge -nav =$(qsearch -sNC '^gentoo-sources$' --format='%{CATEGORY}/%{P}'|head -1)

qfile: finding orphaned files

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2022-09-08.

I find qfile very useful for finding orphaned files like, for example, qfile -o /usr/lib/python*/site-packages/*. I wonder how this could be included in the wiki page: to include an example or adding to the title "and finding orphaned files". Mimosinnet (talk) 07:32, 8 September 2022 (UTC)

Certainly you are welcome to add this, and any other information, with a new header under the Usage section. Don't be timid! There is nothing left to discuss. :) --Maffblaster (talk) 15:56, 8 September 2022 (UTC)
