 Searching the ports
Author: William Cooper 
Date:   21-02-02 14:06

We all know freshports.org rocks for searching for ports online, but what about when we're not online or cannot access it due to whatever.. well I just do..

cd /usr/ports
make search key="keywordhere"

where keywordhere is you type in what your looking for
like 'wget' 'lynx' 'dnetc' 'fxp' and it will bring back
a description/path/name

enjoy ;)

regards
