The prodreg command has been updated to include functionality that is similar to the Solaris Product Registry graphical user interface. You can now use the following prodreg subcommands on the command line or in administration scripts to perform a variety of tasks.
browse – The browse subcommand enables you to view registered software in a terminal window. By repeating the browse subcommand, you can navigate through the directory hierarchy of registered software.
info – The info subcommand enables you to view information about registered software.
You can use the info subcommand to identify the following specifics.
Installation location of the software
Other software that the specified software requires
Other software that depends on the specified software
Software that has been damaged by the removal of packages that the software requires
unregister – The unregister subcommand removes software installation information from the Solaris Product Registry. If you remove software from your system without properly uninstalling the software from the Registry, you can use the prodreg unregister command to clean up the obsolete entries in the Solaris Product Registry.
uninstall – The uninstall subcommand enables you to remove registered software from your system by launching that software's uninstallation program.
