NAMEdebget - Fetch a .deb for a package in APT's database
SYNOPSISdebget package [package ...]
DESCRIPTIONdebget fetches a .deb for one or more packages from an Debian mirror. It uses apt-get(8) to find out the URL so it will download the same version from the same server as apt-get(8) would do. The .deb will be downloaded with curl(1) and stored in your current working directory.
KNOWN BUGSdebget will not work for packages that are available in apt-get(8)'s cache. If you need that functionality please use the download option in aptitude(8).
