NAME

jigdo-lite - Download jigdo files using wget  

SYNOPSIS

jigdo-lite [ URL ]

 

DESCRIPTION

See jigdo-file(1) for an introduction to Jigsaw Download.

Given the URL of a `.jigdo' file, jigdo-lite downloads the large file (e.g. a CD image) that has been made available through that URL. wget(1) is used to download the necessary pieces of administrative data (contained in the `.jigdo' file and a corresponding `.template' file) as well as the many pieces that the large file is made from. The jigdo-file(1) utility is used to reconstruct the large file from the pieces.

`.jigdo' files that contain references to Debian mirrors are treated specially: When such a file is recognized, you are asked to select one mirror out of a list of all Debian mirrors.

If URL is not given on the command line, the script prompts for a location to download the `.jigdo' file from.

CD images for Debian Linux can be downloaded with jigdo <URL:http://www.debian.org/CD/jigdo-cd/>.  

AUTHOR
