.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.
.IP "\(bu" 4
add:
Access the local cache of package data\. This command is primarily
intended to be used internally by npm, but it can provide a way to
add data to the local installation cache explicitly\.
.
.IP
If two arguments are provided, then npm will fetch the data from the
registry\. This allows npm to use the filesystem as a local proxy to
the registry\.
.
.IP "\(bu" 4
ls:
Show the data in the cache\. Additional arguments are joined together
in a path\-like fashion, but something like \fBnpm cache ls npm/0\.1\.5\fR is
acceptable as well\.
.
.IP "\(bu" 4
clean:
Delete data out of the cache for a specific package and version, all
versions of a package, or all data for all packages, depending on the
arguments supplied\.
.
.IP
This can be used if invalid data gets into the cache\.
.
.IP "" 0
.
