yaah (packages)


Yaah is a helper for the Archlinux User Repository (AUR). It has two main
functions. First of all, it can download packages, from the AUR by their
package name. The second function is to check installed foreign packages, if
there are updates available.


-h, --help                              Display help
-c, --check                             Check installed packages if there are updates available
-d directory, --downloaddir=directory   Download packages to the specified directory
-v, --verbose                           Be more verbose, can be supplied at maximum 2 times
-q, --quiet                             Be less verbose. Takes precedence over -v and --verbose
