diffindex-download(1) [debian man page]


diffindex-download - Download utility for Debian Contents files SYNOPSIS
diffindex-download [ options ] URL filename DESCRIPTION
diffindex-download is a command line tool for downloading Contents files. It uses APT's diff/Index format patches when available to avoid downloading the full file. diffindex-download is used by apt-file. OPTIONS
-n number If more than number patches would be necessary, download the whole file. Specifying 0 to always download the whole file is possible. -k Don't verify the peer certificate when using https. -c cacert If cacert is a directory: Use cacert as CA certificate path. Otherwise use cacert as CA certificate bundle. See the --capath and --cacert options in the curl(1) man page. -i Don't exit with errror if the URL does not exist. This is useful as some archives don't provide Contents files. -q Be quiet (opposite of -v). The default if stdout is not a terminal. -v Be verbose (opposite of -q). The default if stdout is a terminal. -d Print additional debug info. -h Display a short help screen. SEE ALSO

spectool - manual page for spectool v1.0.10rpmdev1 SYNOPSIS
spectool [<options>] <specfile> DESCRIPTION
Spectool is a tool to expand and download sources and patches from specfiles. If you experience problems with specific specfiles, try to run rpmbuild --nobuild --nodeps <specfile> on the file which might give a clue why spectool fails on a file (ignore anything about missing sources or patches). The plan is to catch errors like this in spectool itself and warn the user about it in the future. OPTIONS
Operating mode: -l, --lf, --list-files lists the expanded sources/patches (default) -g, --gf, --get-files gets the sources/patches that are listed with a URL -h, --help display this help screen Files on which to operate: -A, --all all files, sources and patches (default) -S, --sources all sources -P, --patches all patches -s, --source x[,y[,...]] specified sources -p, --patch a[,b[,...]] specified patches Miscellaneous: -d, --define 'macro value' defines RPM macro 'macro' to be 'value' -C, --directory dir download into specified directory (default '.') -R, --sourcedir download into rpm's %{_sourcedir} -n, --dryrun, --dry-run don't download anything, just show what would be done -f, --force try to unlink and download if target files exist -D, --debug output debug info, don't clean up when done FILES
