'Brew Cask List' Command

Hi all! I’m new to homebrew and trying to understand what the command ‘brew cask list’ did here, specifically, the "Cloning into /usr/local/Homebrew/Taps/homebrew/homebrew-cask’. Can someone please explain ?

Hi @kemohsabe and welcome to Homebrew.

Cask definitions are only downloaded lazily, i. e. on the first time you run a brew cask command.
On subsequent runs, that shouldn’t happen again.

Hi Claudia, thank you!

And thanks for clearing that up. Makes sense since I did a fresh install of MacOS :slight_smile:
