1 Hello list!

3 Please bear awhile with the Gento n00b here...

5 If I have a package 'xyz-1.1.0' already installed, and there's a newer
6 'xyz-1.2.0', what's the difference between 'emerge --update xyz' and
7 'emerge xyz'?

9 The latter I saw also pulled in and installed the latest version. So,
10 I am confused as to the difference.

12 Thank you for your explanation.
