This is the BSDA Study Guide Book written via a wiki collaboration. This is a work in progress. You may contribute to or discuss this specific page at http://bsdwiki.reedmedia.net/wiki/Upgrade_installed_software.html.
Upgrade installed software
Recognize the built-in and third-party commands which are available for upgrading installed software on BSD systems. In addition, be able to recognize which BSD systems use pkgsrc.
TODO: this concept is redundant; if this is about packages should say "packages" and pkgsrc is introduced earlier?
Dragonfly and NetBSD provide pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_chk, pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_comp, make update and make replace; portupgrade, portsnap and cvsup are available as third-party utilities
