The wrupdate Command

This command can be used to check for, download, and install updates to the program.

This command is equivalent to giving the special keyword ``:xt_pkgs'' to the help system, which brings up the XicTools package management page (see 3.14.1). The page lists installed and available packages for each of the XicTools programs for the current operating system, and provides buttons to download and install the packages.

Unlike in earlier WRspice releases, there is no provision for automatic checking for updates, so this command or equivalent should be run periodically to check for updated packages. The computer must have http access to the internet for successful use of this functionality.
