Not to be confused with World file (Portage).

The world set, also referred to as @world, encompasses the system set, the selected set, and the @profile set.

Later, when a world update is requested (through emerge -uDN @world or similar command), Portage will use the world set as the base for its update calculations. A long command version of the command would be as follows:

root #emerge --update --deep --newuse @world
