package clean-up


I believe I read some where that there is a way to clean up after installing/removing a package... like a -clean switch or something. This ring any bells with anyone... anyone know what I'm talking about... or did I dream this? Thanks!!!

man installpkg and removepkg doesn't return any info of your -clean flag nor any info on "cleaning up"...

Most likely, you dreamt this thing up

of course there is a make clean when you compile programs... but there's no similar command using the slackpack commands, as asked by mpelts.
