diffindex-download is a command line tool for downloading Contents files. It uses APTs diff/Index format patches when available to avoid downloading the full file. diffindex-download is used by apt-file.
-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 Dont 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 Dont exit with errror if the URL does not exist. This is useful as some archives dont 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.
