See jigdo-file(1) for an introduction to
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:
Output short summary of command syntax.
Output version number.
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 environments.
