17DESCRIPTION
18-----------
19*port archivefetch* attempts to download a binary archive for the given port(s)
20from the configured binary sources, by default from 'packages.macports.org' and
21its mirrors. An archive or port image is a tarball containing the files of
22a port and some metadata and can be used to install a port without building it
23from source. See the *PORT IMAGES* section for a description of the port image
24concept in MacPorts.
25
26You can choose multiple variants, by specifying +name, which indicates the
27variant is desired, or -name, indicating the contrary.
28
29Global variants will be applied as specified in man:variants.conf[5].

35*-p*::
36    Proceed even if a port fails to fetch. This is useful if you are trying to
37    download all available binary images for a number of ports, e.g., if you
38    want to install them later without a network connection.
