=head1 NAME

debget - Fetch one or more F<.deb> files for a package in APT's database

=head1 SYNOPSIS

B<debget> I<package>[=I<version>] [I<package>>[=I<version>] ...]

=head1 DESCRIPTION

B<debget> fetches F<.deb> files for one or more packages from an
Debian mirror.  It uses L<apt-get(8)>'s I<download> subcommand to
download the package so it will download the same version from the
same server as L<apt-get(8)>'s I<install> subcommand would do. The
F<.deb> file will be saved into your current working directory.

If a "=I<version>" with a package version number is appended to a
package name, that package version (if available) will be downloaded.
