epkg for gentoo :)
epkg for gentoo implements some same features as dpkg for debian and equery for gentoo
Yes... there are epm for gentoo... and equery which can do the same...
but much more slower.
The same with equery...
utility is really fast :)
debian like syntax
# epkg --list
# epkg -l
gentoo like syntax
# epkg all
To list package contents, just try
# epkg -L
epkg --listfiles gtk+
# epkg -L =x11-libs/gtk+-1.2.3 :)
# epkg files gtk+
To find package which installed the given file type
# epkg -S
epkg --search /usr/bin/vim
# epkg -S file
# epkg belongs file
And one feature which doesn't present in dpkg but still needed for my
other tools: ept-get and genorphan
# epkg depends gtk+
will show all packages which depend on gtk+
see the manual page for more
