Not inline, but ok, I will just copy/paste below :)

Yeah this is typically the important commands that are not obvious
when just quickly browsing the man page.
But as I said, it's already covered in the wiki :

+pacman -U <'path'>::
+	Install package found in the specified file.

This one looks like the abstract description we already have, just shorter :
       -U, --upgrade
           Upgrade or add package(s) to the system and install the
required dependencies from sync repos.
           Either a URL or file path can be specified. This is a
“remove-then-add” process. See Upgrade
           Options below; also see Handling Config Files for an
explanation on how pacman takes care of
           config files.
