Removing a package in unix

I have a package that i'm going to be adding...i wanted to make sure i knew how to remove it prior to instalation..

expect-5.40-sol8-sparc-local.gz

pkgadd -d ./expectpkg/

would the command to remove this package be...

pkgrm expect-5.40-sol8-sparc-local

or is the package instance not as simple as using the filename..?

You need to know the package name for expect and then

pkgrm <PKGNAME>

if using a SFW packackage the name will be something like SMCexpect.

If you don't know the package name, you should be able to get it from

pkginfo | grep -i expect

or something similar to that. Pkginfo lists all the installed packages so if you have a decent guess as to what it might be called you should be able to grep for it and find the exact name.

You can also use pkginfo on the original file to display various pieces of information about the package contained in it. For example:

pkginfo -d expect-5.40-sol8-sparc-local

Also when you add the package it tells you the name of the package it is installing.
