How to list installed software packages in FreeBSD.

PKG_INFO(1) FreeBSD General Commands Manual PKG_INFO(1)

pkg_info -- a utility for displaying information on software packages

pkg_info [-bcdDEfghGiIjkKLmopPqQrRsvVxX] [-e package] [-l prefix]
[-t template] -a | pkg-name ...
pkg_info [-qQ] -W filename
pkg_info [-qQ] -O origin

The pkg_info command is used to dump out information for packages, either
packed up in files with the pkg_create(1) command or already installed on
the system with the pkg_add(1) command.

The following command line options are supported:

pkg-name ...
The named packages are described. A package name may either be
the name of an installed package, the pathname to a package dis-
tribution file or a URL to an FTP available package. Package
version numbers can also be matched in a relational manner using
the >=, <=, > and < operators. For example,

pkg_info 'portupgrade>=20030723'

will match versions 20030723 and later of the portupgrade pack-
