       pkgparam - display package parameter values

       pkgparam [-v] [-d device] [-R root_path] pkginst [param]...

       pkgparam -f filename [-v] [param]...

       pkgparam  displays  the value associated with the parameter or parameters requested on the
       command line. The values are located in either the pkginfo(4) file for pkginst or from the
       specific file named with the -f option.

       One  parameter  value is shown per line. Only the value of a parameter is given unless the
       -v option is used. With this option, the output of the command is in this format:


       If no parameters are specified on the command line, values for all  parameters  associated
       with the package are shown.

       Options and arguments for this command are:

       -d device       Specify	the  device  on  which a pkginst is stored. It can be a directory
		       pathname or the identifiers for tape, floppy disk, or removable disk  (for
		       example,  /var/tmp, /dev/diskette, and /dev/dsk/c1d0s0). The special token
		       spool may be used to represent the default  installation  spool	directory

       -f filename     Read filename for parameter values.

       -R root_path    Defines	the full path name of a subdirectory to use as the root_path. All
		       files, including package system information  files,  are  relocated  to	a
		       directory tree starting in the specified root_path.

       -v	       Verbose mode. Display name of parameter and its value.

       pkginst	  Defines  a  specific package instance for which parameter values should be dis-

       param	  Defines a specific parameter whose value should be displayed.

       If parameter information is not available for the indicated  package,  the  command  exits
       with a non-zero status.

       0     Successful completion.

       >0    An error occurred.

       Application Packaging Developer's Guide

       With  the  -f  option,  you  can  specify  the  file from which parameter values should be
       extracted. This file should be in the same  format as a pkginfo(4) file. For example, such
       a  file might be created during package development and used while testing software during
       this stage.

       Package commands are largefile(5)-aware. They handle files larger than 2 GB  in	the  same
       way  they  handle smaller files. In their current implementations, pkgadd(1M), pkgtrans(1)
       and other package commands can process a datastream of  up to 4 GB.
