       jigdo-lite - Download jigdo files using wget


       jigdo-lite [ URL ]


       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. The following command line
       options are recognized:

       -h --help
              Output short summary of command syntax.

       -v --version
              Output version number.

       --scan FILES
              Do not ask for "Files to scan", use this path.

              Do  not  ask  any  questions,  instead behave as if the user had
              pressed Return at all prompts. This can be useful  when  running
              jigdo-lite   from   cron   jobs   or  in  other  non-interactive


       jigdo-file(1), jigdo-mirror(1), wget(1) (or ‘info wget’)

       CD  images  for   Debian   Linux   can   be   downloaded   with   jigdo


       Jigsaw  Download <URL:> was written by Richard
       Atterer <jigdo>, to make downloading of CD ROM  images  for
       the Debian Linux distribution more convenient.
