Default "pkg_info -W" in OpenBSD?

Hi everyone, please forgive my lameness. But I just want to know a way around this.

I have been reading the "BSD UNIX 1000 Plus Commands..." book and I came across this command in the command examples in Chapter 1 of the book.

$ pkg_info -W convert
/usr/local/bin/convert was
installed by package
ImageMagick-6.3.6.9

Description of the command:
Find which package the convert command is from.


My problem is I'm running OpenBSD 6.2 current, and there seems to be no "-W" option in OpenBSD pkg_info. I tried looking at the man page but cannot seem to find the -W switch/option.

Is there a way around this in OpenBSD?

Thank you very much in advance guys/gals, Again please forgive my lameness.

SINcerely,

I don't know the book, but there are different pkg_add(1) tools on different BSDs, which have different options.

What you're looking for on OpenBSD is the -E option. Review the man page.
Code:
$ pkg_info -E $(which convert)
/usr/local/bin/convert: ImageMagick-6.9.9.30
ImageMagick-6.9.9.30 image processing tools
$

For future passers-by: that book was written in 2008, actually FreeBSD-specific (despite the title), and refers to a package system that no longer exists in FreeBSD. So I wouldn't use it to learn how to work with packages.
