Update of bug #49156 (project octave):

              Item Group:         Feature Request => Incorrect Documentation


Follow-up Comment #4:


it *is* documented:

>> help pkg
          Show the list of currently installed packages.  For example,

               pkg list

          will produce a short report with the package name, version,
          and installation directory for each installed package.  Supply
          a package name to limit reporting to a particular package.
          For example:

               pkg list image

          If a single return argument is requested then 'pkg' returns a
          cell array where each element is a structure with information
          on a single package.

               installed_packages = pkg ("list")
          by the package.

Maybe the first lines of the help should mention that pkg can be used for
querying installed packages and the relevant syntax should be listed.
