I was wondering how I find out what packages I have installed on my gentoo system. I would like to know every single package that I have installed, even those that are not a logical consequence of those in my world file. How does portage know what packages are installed? Is there some kind of text file somewhere? I just wanted to go through the list to see if I could free up some space! Thanks!

The portage database itself, of course. :)

The database consists of files in /var/db/pkg, please don't modify them though.
