Find files created or modified by an installer
Authored by: solitario on Jan 05, '10 08:23:26AM

Though it is not a fool proof method, you can use pkgutil --lsbom or pkgutil --files to list the files in the bom file for a package installed by Apple's Software Installer.

This will not be accurate if for example:

  • The installer creates files during installation (through a installer script)
  • The program creates files on first run
  • The program updates itself later on

Also note that several packages may own the same files (when updates are installed).
