Documentation for qlist

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

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)
