pkgparam(1)                      User Commands                     pkgparam(1)



NAME
       pkgparam - display package parameter values

SYNOPSIS
       pkgparam [-v] [-d device] [-R root_path] pkginst [param...]

       pkgparam -f filename [-v] [param...]

DESCRIPTION
       pkgparam displays the value associated with the parameter or parameters
       requested on the command line. The values are  located  in  either  the
       pkginfo(4) file for pkginst or from the specific file named with the -f
       option.

       One parameter value is shown per line. Only the value of a parameter is
       given unless the -v option is used. With this option, the output of the
       command is in this format:


              parameter1='value1'
              parameter2='value2'
              parameter3='value3'


       If no parameters are specified on the  command  line,  values  for  all
       parameters associated with the package are shown.

OPTIONS
       Options and arguments for this command are:

       -d device       Specify the device on which a pkginst is stored. It can
                       be a directory pathname or the  identifiers  for  tape,
                       floppy  disk, or removable disk (for example, /var/tmp,
                       /dev/diskette, and /dev/dsk/c1d0s0). The special  token
                       spool may be used to represent the default installation
                       spool directory (/var/spool/pkg).



       -f filename     Read filename for parameter values.



       -R root_path    Defines the full path name of a subdirectory to use  as
                       the  root_path.  All  files,  including  package system
                       information files, are relocated to  a  directory  tree
                       starting in the specified root_path.



       -v              Verbose mode. Display name of parameter and its value.



OPERANDS
       pkginst         Defines a specific package instance for which parameter
                       values should be displayed.



       param           Defines a specific parameter whose value should be dis-
                       played.



ERRORS
       If  parameter  information  is not available for the indicated package,
       the command exits with a non-zero status.

EXIT STATUS
       0        Successful completion.



       >>0       An error occurred.

NOTES
       With  the -f option, you can specify the file from which parameter val-
       ues should be extracted. This file should be in the same  format  as  a
       pkginfo(4) file. For example, such a file might be created during pack-
       age development and used while testing software during this stage.
