Customizing the format and contents of the pkginfo display
displays information in three formats: short (default), extracted, or long.
The short format
shows only the category, package abbreviation, and full package name.
It presents one line of information per package.
the format of the display:
displays packages based on their category membership
displays only completely installed packages
displays a long format showing
all of the available information about a package
displays only partially installed packages
displays the package abbreviation,
package name, package architecture (if available),
and package version (if available)
is used to get information on set member
packages located on tape media, all options are
allowed because the information is
readily available on the tape.
In the case of disks, if
the SIP and each of its member packages are on separate disks,
not all information about set member packages is available.
In this case, pkginfo only displays a short listing.
