NAME

       debget - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT's database

SYNOPSIS

       debget package [package ...]

DESCRIPTION

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

KNOWN BUGS

       debget will not work for packages that are available in apt-get's cache.  If you need that
       functionality please use the .download option in aptitude.
