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 loca-
       tion to download	the `.jigdo' file from.	The following command line op-
       tions 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  environ-
	      ments.

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