we started discussing case-insensitiy on the list a while ago (don't know wether this was before or after the archives broke). Personally I believe, we should support case-insensitivty from port(1) in general:

port install texshop would actually go and instal TeXShop.

How about if we go and try to implement the whole way and make sure it works case-insensitive everywhere?

your attachement is no diff :) anywaysm, the change you propose got proposed by me on darwinports@ about 1 1/2 months ago. This way dportsearch can not be exact anymore (since it would return PortsManager and portsmanager, even though these could potentionally be something different).

If we want to support case-insensitiveness (which I do think, would be cool) we need to add it in a way, without making dportsearch incapable of being exact.

I'm currently re-thinking dportsearch as a whole and am trying to re-work it to allow other features as well. I should have a patch in the next days.

Why do we want everything to be insensitive? I think port search being insensitive is useful since you are searching for something, but I don't understand why targets need to be case-insensitive, and I don't really like it... you should know what you're looking for.

as far as i'm concerned, case insensitivity is interesting for search (or related if any), not for others targets and at no cost for installing & co. goal is to be have better search option (could be more like a search by maintainers or in description but not the subject)

could be (and would be better) if it is an option (like landon said on darwinports@)
