NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       debget package[=version] [package>[=version] ...]

DESCRIPTION

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

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