- -s, --search
Search for packages with the PACKAGE(s) as the search term(s).
- -u, --update
Check foreign packages for updates in the AUR. Pass the -d flag as well to fetch updates, if any, at the same time.
- -c, --color[=WHEN]
Use colored output. WHEN is `never', `always' or `auto'. Color will be disabled in a pipe unless WHEN is set to always.
Display debug messages.
- -f, --force
Overwrite existing files when downloading.
- -h, --help
Display the help message and quit.
- --ignore <'pkg'>
Ignore a package upgrade. Can be used more than once. Also accepts a comma delimited list as a single argument. Packages listed in pacman's IgnorePkg directive are honored.
- -q, --quiet
Establish secure connections over https.
- -t, --target <'dir'>
Download taurballs to alternate directory, specified by DIR. Either a relative or absolute path can be specified, but all components of the path must exist.
cower will look for a config file located at $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/cower/cower.conf and read color options from it in key=value format. Valid keys are:
- repo, packages, uptodate, outofdate, url, info, warn, error
Valid color values are:
- BLACK, BLUE, CYAN, FG, GREEN, MAGENTA, RED, WHITE, YELLOW
All colors are also available in bold by prefixing BOLD (e.g. BOLDYELLOW).
All keys and values are case sensitive. Comments, if desired, can be specfied with a #. If a color is not specified, a default will prevail.
