Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
build
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Build the package from source instead of downloading and installing a binary. Requires that the port source tree is already installed. Automatically builds and installs the 'sqlports' package, if it is not already installed.
clean
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
When updating or removing packages, delete the extra configuration file(s) in the old packages which are annotated with @extra in the packaging-list.
name
list / elements=string / required
A name or a list of names of the packages.
ports_dir
path
Default:
"/usr/ports"
When used in combination with the build option, allows overriding the default ports source directory.
quick
boolean
    Choices:
  • no ←
  • yes
Replace or delete packages quickly; do not bother with checksums before removing normal files.
state
string
    Choices:
  • absent
  • latest
  • present ←
present will make sure the package is installed. latest will make sure the latest version of the package is installed. absent will make sure the specified package is not installed.

Notes

Note

  • When used with a loop: each package will be processed individually, it is much more efficient to pass the list directly to the name option.
