Intelligent uses of --noconfirm

noconfirm is one of the most discussed features of pacman, I was wondering what intelligent uses it has.

I only use to download the updates with:

$ pacman -Syyuw --noconfirm

So that pacman download all the files and I can do the update later without waiting downloads.

When do you use this --noconfirm feature?

Re: Intelligent uses of --noconfirm

alias pac-clean='sudo pacman -Scvv --noconfirm'

I am sure there are other uses.

A bit OT, but how do I rm the packages but keep the repos?

well, yes, automatic dl of updates overnight on a server.

then host a LAN httpd for all arch boxes on the lan, which first try to dld the updates through the server.

arch updatates are resource intensive sad

Re: Intelligent uses of --noconfirm

@ karol, I guess you'll have to avoid the --noconfirm switch in that case.
