sbopkg has cli interface also. Just issue sbopkg --help and learn how to
use it.

> Hello guys,
> When I had to search for a package in the SlackBuilds, I went to
> slackbuilds.org and searched for it; however I have a local (git) copy of
> slackbuilds which I wanted to search, but didnt like using the file manager
> to look into each folder..
> So yesterday I started writing a script to search my repository for a
> specified package, and then added some more options like viewing the info
> file of the package, viewing the readme, the slackbuild, etc..
> Then today I added more options like downloading the package, build it,
> install/upgrade/remove, and querying installed packages.
> (More info about its features/usage in the readme.)
> So its become a kind of a package manager now. I named it as slacker for
> want of a better name.

> Tarball available for download also:
> http://download.sourceforge.net/mefiles/slacker-0.1.tar.gz
> (One bug I had discovered, is that suppose you search all packages
> beginning with s,
> slacker --search s*
> It wouldnt display anything (perhaps due to bash substitution), but
> slacker --search "s*"
> seems to display them.)
> P.S. I do know about and use sbopkg, but I wanted a commandline tool for
> (quickly) searching the packages. :)
