'pkg_search': A little wrapper script for searching/installing packages in OpenBSD - BSD
ajac
i like this!

i hope you dont mind but i forked it on github. i added an escape when 0 is entered, because sometimes i wasnt finding anything i wanted to install.

Thanks ajac! Hm, I don't really mind, but do you really think that justifies forking it? Perhaps a pull request or even just a quick suggestion here would have sufficed :)

i don't know about scripting but doesn't suppose to ask me for password when i hit the number of the program i want ?

That's because the script is calling pkg_add to install the program to /usr/local which needs permissions.

Holy necrobump

I just pull up the /pub/OpenBSD/5.7/packages/`machine -a` directory of my chosen mirror in a browser window and Ctrl+F to see if what I want is in packages. Or pkg_add -n and take a wild guess at the name.

If I want to check out what programs are available for OpenBSD, I go to http://ports.su/
