pkg_select will display a curses file browser for the pkg system. You can
browse pkgsrc and gather various informations about packages, like avail-
able version, installed version, comment and homepage. A simple paging
system lets you read information files. You can browse both installed
and uninstalled packages, as well as dependencies list and perform vari-
ous administrative tasks to them. A package finder system helps you to
easily locate a package by its name. pkg_select can handle either source
or binary installations from local pkgsrc, local binary packages direc-
tory (see PACKAGES environment variable in the manpage), or binary only when using
the pkgsrc-over-ftp feature.
Also, if no pkgsrc is installed, pkg_select offers ability fo fetch it by
FTP, CVS or directory copy. It is also possible to update an existing
pkgsrc via the interface.
pkg_select user interface is quite self explainatory, every available
shortcut is shown and annotated.
