info - get information on a package


This command is used to display a list of information on a package, such as the maintainers, the stability and version or versions available for installation (for remote packages).

If passed description or notes, it displays the complete text of these fields. If passed files, it lists the files in the package and their on-disk location for installed packages. For example:

php pyrus.phar info PackageName description

The command will accept any concrete or abstract package names as its argument. Note that if there is an ambiguity between an installed package and the remote package, Pyrus will assume that information is being requested on the installed package.


The --forceremote or -r option is used to instruct Pyrus to resolve any ambiguity between an installed package and a remote package to assume that information is requested on the remote package.
