       0launch — download and run programs by URL


       0launch [OPTION]... PROGRAM [ARG]...


       0launch   runs   the   given   program.   PROGRAM   is   either   a   URL   in   the  form
       `http://site/program.xml' or a local path name like `/path/to/program.xml'.

       If the program is not already on your computer, 0launch downloads information about  which
       versions  are available, and lets you choose one to download. It will also (automatically)
       do the same for any libraries the program needs.

       Note that much of the functionality that was  originally  in  0launch  has  now  moved  to

       0launch PROGRAM ARGS

       is roughly equivalent to

       0install run PROGRAM ARGS

       See the 0install(1) man-page for more information.


       When  a  program  is  available  using 0launch, it will have an associated URL. To run the
       program, simply invoke 0launch with this as an argument:


       The first time you do this, details about the program are downloaded and cached,  and  you
       will  be prompted to confirm the versions to use. In future, the program will run directly
       from the cache without confirmation.

       To check for new versions:

       0launch --refresh

       To avoid having to keep typing the full URI, use the  `0install  add'  command  to  create
       shortcuts to run your programs.


       0launch takes the same options as "0install run".


       To debug 0launch itself, use the --verbose and --console options. For example:

       $ 0launch -vvc http://myprog

       To  trace or debug programs run by 0launch, use the --wrapper option.  For example, to run
       myprog --help, displaying all calls to open(2):

       $ 0launch --wrapper="strace -e open" http://myprog --help

       If your program is interpreted (e.g.  a  Python  program),  and  you  wish  to  debug  the
       interpreter running it, you can do it like this:

       $ 0launch --wrapper="gdb --args python" http://myprog --help


       Configuration files (see basedir spec):

              Global configuration settings.

              List of trusted keys.

              Per-interface settings, and extra feeds.

       Cached data (can be re-downloaded if lost):

              Downloaded cached feed files.

              Downloaded cached implementations, indexed by manifest digest.

       See the 0store(1) man page for more information.
