pkg_info provides a nice listing of package names that include version numbers. I'd like to have a list of the names without the version numbers so that I can write a script to install the newer versions after a clean installation.
Looking at the package names, I'm having a hard time coming up with an algorithm for separating the package names from the version numbers. Many package names have dashes (postgresql-server), and some have letters in the version numbers (libid3tag-0.15.1b). Does anyone have a good way of separating the package names from the version numbers? Is there a better way of identifying and installing a set of packages after a clean installation? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Andrew L.
