You'll need eix. If you don't have it installed, type:
Code:
emerge -va eix


The script is as follows:
Code:
eix -Ic | grep "\[[A-Z]" | awk '{print $2}'


You can even customize it to include a full range of eix command, as long as it's output in compact mode:
Code:
eix -c $* | grep "\[[A-Z]" | awk '{print $2}'


It's pretty handy and it saved me some time. I thought I could share it to everyone.

Thank you for sharing this method with eix. Do you know how to use eix so it only prints those packages that are stable for a given arch? Let's say eix -c asterisk will print not only stable but also unstable and masked packages. How to single out only stable packages?

thanks

@robbyjo,

what about
Code:
eix -Ic --format-compact '<category>/<name>'
?

It cannot work because '-I' stands for installed packages only. I want stable only packages displayed.
I tried different things. It seems it can't be done in a simple manner. Am I the only guy that wants to see stable only packages available for any given search string?

Wierd indeed.

Code:
find /var/db/pkg -name DESCRIPTION |cut -d / -f 5,6|sort

no need for eix
