Description Peter Fox 2012-02-25 16:07:44 UTC
I keep forgetting, and the man page doesn't tell me, what the emerge option is to update the world file without rebuilding a package.

Eventually I find my way to which reminds me.

The man page for emerge, and the --noreplace [-n] option should include a comment along the lines of 'This option can be used to update the world file without rebuilding a package.'

Reproducible: Always
