dget is a toold to download Debian packages.
It can download the whole of a SourcePackage for a URL
of a .changes or .dsc file. This is
very useful for ?Sposoring or ?PackageChecking. If you use the
-x option the package is also unpacked using dpkg-source.
It can also download binary packages from the ?Mirror like apt
would do, but is more convenient. Just pass it the name of the package
rather than a URL. An exact version can be retrieved (if available) by
suffixing the package name with
version is the full
?VersionNumber of the desired version.
