JIGDO-LITE(1)                                                    JIGDO-LITE(1)



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. 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.
