NAME

       diffindex-download - Download utility for Debian Contents files

SYNOPSIS

       diffindex-download [ options ] URL filename

DESCRIPTION

       diffindex-download  is  a  command line tool for downloading Contents files. It uses APT's
       diff/Index format patches when available to avoid downloading the full  file.   diffindex-
       download is used by apt-file.

OPTIONS

          -n number
              If more than number patches would be necessary, download the whole file. Specifying
              0 to always download the whole file is possible.

          -k  Don't verify the peer certificate when using https.

          -c cacert
              If cacert is a directory: Use cacert as CA certificate path. Otherwise  use  cacert
              as  CA certificate bundle. See the --capath and --cacert options in the curl(1) man
              page.

          -i  Don't exit with errror if the URL does not exist. This is useful as  some  archives
              don't provide Contents files.

          -q  Be quiet (opposite of -v). The default if stdout is not a terminal.

          -v  Be verbose (opposite of -q). The default if stdout is a terminal.

          -d  Print additional debug info.
