       gaze - query/view sorcery package management information

       gaze [-q] <what> [<arguments>]

       gaze  is  part of the sorcery source-based package management suite. It
       is a general purpose command-line tool  for  displaying  package  logs,
       version(1,3,5)  information,  checking for installed packages, checksums, mes-
       sage digests, maintainer information, package URL information, removing
       obsolete  packages, displaying new packages, untracked files, sections,
       searching for files that are installed, finding when spells  were  cre-
       ated  and  packages  in(1,8)  the  software  catalogue. It can even take and
       retrieve snap shots of currently installed packages for  easy  duplica-

              disable human style output.

              find  and  display  all files which are not currently tracked by
              the sorcery package management system

              removes all old source  code  and  old  backups.  otherwise  the
              source  code from previous versions is kept so that the packages
              can be rolled back to  older  versions.  This  does  not  delete
              sources that are up to date, but not installed.
