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. And if the packages being dropped have dependency packages that would otherwise no longer be used, then they will be dropped as well unless the --keep-unused|-K option is specified.

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.
--keep-unused|-K
Don't drop dependency packages that were automatically built but will no longer be used.
--drop-dependent|-D
Don't warn about or ask for confirmation if dropping dependent packages.
--keep-dependent
Issue an error if attempting to drop dependent packages.
--disfigure-only
Disfigure all the packages but don't purge.
--print-only|-p
Print to stdout what would be done without actually doing anything.
--plan header
Print the plan (even if --yes is specified) and start it with the header line (unless it is empty).
--directory|-d dir
Assume configuration is in dir rather than in the current working directory.
