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)
