    No perl

    Today, on FreeBSd-12.1p10, I ran a script that has been working on FreeBSD for years and got this result: env: perl: No such file or directory. Which is, to put it mildly, bizarre. So I checked for perl: which perl | echo $? ==> 1. So, no perl installed. So I checked that: pkg info -x...

    Solved Check for new packages via cron?

    Can you recommend a way to automatically check for new packages via cron? As a first step I added a daily pkg audit -q but this only lists vulnerable packages. pkg update does not what I want and pkg upgrade is one step too far. Is there maybe something similar to freebsd-update cron for packages?
