99
10 B<debget> fetches a .deb for one or more packages from an Debian mirror.
11 It uses L<apt-get(8)> to find out the URL so it will download the same version
12 from the same server as L<apt-get(8)> would do. The .deb will be downloaded with
13 curl(1) and stored in your current working directory.

15 =head1 KNOWN BUGS

17 B<debget> will not work for packages that are available in L<apt-get(8)>'s cache.
18 If you need that functionality please use the I<download> option in
19 L<aptitude(8)>.
10 B<debget> fetches F<.deb> files for one or more packages from an
11 Debian mirror. It uses L<apt-get(8)>'s I<download> subcommand to
12 download the package so it will download the same version from the
13 same server as L<apt-get(8)>'s I<install> subcommand would do. The
14 F<.deb> file will be saved into your current working directory.
