Display a list of files in package while in Installer
Authored by: Brethil on Apr 10, '12 09:31:49AM

One can also use

lsbom -s /path/to/file.pkg/Contents/Archive.bom

this will display a list of installed files, this is useful when used with xargs for removing installed packages.

Yeah, I would have never thought to submit this as a hint because: a.) I've been doing it for what seems like forever--it's right there in the menu; and b.) I read about using lsbom way back in 2000 with the Public Beta. I believe I first read it in a hint on this very site.

I didn't find it because I was searching for a hint about a window, not a menu item.

This said, there may be things that you have been doing for years that are intuitive to you, but that are not well-known, and that deserve to be submitted as hints. (Hint, hint!)
