Library doc

This library is used by cargo-update itself for all its function and is therefore contains all necessary functions.

SYNOPSIS

cargo install-update [OPTIONS] [PACKAGE…]

DESCRIPTION

Cargo subcommand for checking and applying updates to installed executables.

This was mostly built out of a frustration with periodically checking for updates for my cargo-installed executables, which was long and boring.

Updates packages from the main repository and git repositories.

See cargo-install-update-config(1) for further configuring updates.

The CARGO_INSTALL_OPTS environment variable can be set, containing options to forward to the end of cargo install invocations’ argument lists. Note, that cargo-install-update-config(1) is preferred in the general case.

Exit values and possible errors:

-1 - cargo subprocess was terminated by a signal (Linux-only)
1  - option parsing error
2  - registry repository error
X  - bubbled-up cargo install exit value

OPTIONS

-a –all

Update all currently installed executables.

Required if list of packages not given.

[PACKAGE…]

List of packages to update in the [(registry_url):]package_name[:version] format.

Registry defaults to the default crates.io registry,
and can be a name from ~/.cargo/config.

If specified in addition to --all,
will add the specified packages to the update list
(useful, e.g., in conjunction with --allow-no-update).

Required if --all not given.

-l –list

Don't update any packages, just list them.

If PACKAGE is empty, act as if --all was specified.

-f –force

Update all packages, regardless of whether they need to be version-wise.

-i –allow-no-update

Allow to fresh install packages passed as PACKAGE argument.

This is useful, for example, in pairing with cargo-install-update-config(1).

Off by default.

-g –git

Also update git-originating packages.

Off by default, because it's expensive.

-q –quiet

Don't print status messages to stdout
and pass down --quiet to cargo subprocesses.

-s –filter <PACKAGE_FILTER>…

Only consider packages matching all filters.

PACKAGE_FILTER is in the form "key=value", where key is any of:
  - "toolchain": the package must be configured to be compiled with
                 the specified toolchain via cargo-install-update-config(1).

-c –cargo-dir <CARGO_DIR>

Set the directory containing cargo metadata.

Required. Default: "$CARGO_HOME", then "$HOME/.cargo", otherwise manual.

-t –temp-dir <TEMP_DIR>

Set the directory in which to clone git repositories.

Adjoined with "cargo-update" as last segment.

Required. Default: system temp, otherwise manual.
