NAME

jigdo-lite - Download jigdo files using wget

CONTENTS

Synopsis

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. 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.
--noask
  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.
