uninstall package

Synopsis

bpkg pkg-uninstall|uninstall [options] [vars] pkg...
bpkg pkg-uninstall|uninstall [options] [vars] --all|-a
bpkg pkg-uninstall|uninstall [options] [vars] (--all-pattern <pattern>)...

Description

The pkg-uninstall command uninstalls the specified packages (the first form), all the held packages (the second form, see bpkg-pkg-status(1)), or all the held packages that match any of the specified wildcard patterns (the third form). Additionally, immediate or all dependencies of these specified packages can be also uninstalled by specifying the --immediate|-i or --recursive|-r options, respectively. Underneath, this command doesn't do much more than run b uninstall. In the first form the specified packages must have been previously configured with bpkg-pkg-build(1) or bpkg-pkg-configure(1).

Additional command line variables (vars, normally config.*) can be passed to the build system. Such variables apply to all the specified packages but can also be specified to only apply to specific packages using the argument grouping mechanism (see bpkg-argument-grouping(1) for details). See bpkg-pkg-install(1) for some examples.
