for example, on my system stat -x /usr/local/bin/7z show (among other things): Access: Mon Jan 15 00:34:11 2007 So, I last used 7z on jan 15th, at 00:34. I suppose you could write a script to automatically remove packages which haven't been used for a X amount of time, but I would not recommend doing this, because you might accidentally remove a package you don't want to remove. Examples would be dos2unix, antiword, 7zip, packges you might not use a lot, but sure come in handy at times! Also, it would require quite some work, probably more work than you'll save. Another hint may be this: pkg_info -adrR > PKGINFO This will generate a list of all your installed packages including dependency's and a description (from pkg-descr) Drop the -d flag if you don't want descriptions. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
