NAME

bpkg-pkg-drop – drop package

SYNOPSIS

bpkg pkg-drop|drop [options] <pkg>...

DESCRIPTION

The pkg-drop command drops one or more packages from the configuration. If the packages being dropped still have dependent packages, then those will have to be drop as well and you will be prompted to confirm. Similarly, if the packages being dropped have prerequisite packages that would otherwise no longer be needed, you will be offered to drop those as well.

The pkg-drop command also supports several options (described below) that allow you to control the amount of work that will be done.

PKG-DROP OPTIONS

--yes|-y
Assume the answer to all prompts is yes. Note that this option does not apply to the dropping of dependents; use --drop-dependent for that.
--no|-n
Assume the answer to all prompts is no. Only makes sense together with --print-only|-p.
--drop-dependent
Don't warn about or ask for confirmation if dropping dependent packages.
--keep-dependent|-K
Issue an error if attempting to drop dependent packages.
--drop-prerequisite|-D
Drop without confirmation prerequsite packages that were automatically built and will no longer be necessary.
--keep-prerequisite
Don't offer to drop prerequsite packages that were automatically built and will no longer be necessary.
--print-only|-p
Print to STDOUT what would be done without actually doing anything.
--disfigure-only
Disfigure all the packages but don't purge.
--directory|-d dir
Assume configuration is in dir rather than in the current working directory.
