10SYNOPSIS

12[cmdsynopsis]

16DESCRIPTION
17-----------
18*port distcheck* downloads all source files for a given port from all available
19mirrors (including MacPorts' mirror infrastructure) and checks that the
20modification date of the file on the mirror is not more recent than the
21modification date of the 'Portfile'.
22
23Distcheck can be switched to verify the file size of the downloaded files
24instead by setting the 'distcheck.type' option to 'filesize' in the 'Portfile'
25for the tested port.
26
27BUGS
28----
29*port distcheck* should not rely on timestamps or file sizes but use the
30checksums available in the 'Portfile' to verify the integrity of the files on
31the mirrors instead. See man:port-checksum[1].
32
33Meanwhile, you can use source:contrib/port-checkmirrors[port-checkmirrors] from
34contrib to do that.
