Need help ?



aur-search --help

how does it work ?

The first term is use for the query to AUR search. So don’t prefixe it with an exclude char ~, otherwise ~term will be query. The other terms are used in description if you don’t use ~. If you want to exclude a term, the filter will apply to the name and the description of a package. If you don’t want it, you won’t have it.
