I manage several machines with pip, and somtimes find myself running this command:

pip search . | egrep -B1 'INSTALLED|LATEST'

which is slow since it processes the entire repo.

It would be great to have a --list switch which provided similar output but more efficiently.

Sample output:

$ pip search . | egrep -B1 'INSTALLED|LATEST'
zope.interface            - Interfaces for Python
  INSTALLED: 3.5.1
  LATEST:    4.0.3
pip                       - pip installs packages. Python packages. An easy_install replacement
  INSTALLED: 1.2.1 (latest)
numpy                     - NumPy: array processing for numbers, strings, records, and objects.
  INSTALLED: 1.5.1
  LATEST:    1.6.2
PyRSS2Gen                 - A Python library for generating RSS 2.0 feeds.
  INSTALLED: 1.0.0 (latest)

so check out pip list which is currently unreleased. I think that's what you want.

also see pip show

due out in v1.3 which is coming soonish....
