pactree − package dependency tree viewer
pactree [options] package
Pactree produces a dependency tree for a package.
By default, a tree−like output is generated, but with the −−graph option, a Graphviz description is generated.
Use ASCII characters for tree formatting. By default, pactree will use Unicode line drawing characters if it is able to detect that the locale supports them.
Specify an alternative database location.
−d, −−depth <num>
Limits the number of levels of dependency to show. A zero means show the named package only, one shows the packages that are directly required.
Generate a Graphviz description. If this option is given, the −−color and −−linear options are ignored.
Output syntax and command−line options.
Prints package names at the start of each line, one per line.
Show packages that depend on the named package.
Read package data from sync databases instead of local database.
List dependent packages once. Implies −−linear.
Specify an alternate pacman configuration file.
pacman(8), pacman.conf(5), makepkg(8)
