bpkg-pkg-fetch ā€” fetch package archive

Synopsis

bpkg pkg-fetch [options] (pkg/ver | --existing|-e file)

Description

The pkg-fetch command fetches the archive for the specified package name and version from one of the archive-based repositories (bpkg-rep-add(1)). The resulting package state is fetched (bpkg-pkg-status(1)).

If the --replace|-r option is specified, then pkg-fetch will replace the archive of a package that is already in the fetched or unpacked state. Otherwise, pkg-fetch expects the package to not exist in the configuration.

If the --existing|-e option is used, then instead of the name and version arguments, pkg-fetch expects a local path to an existing package archive. In this case, bpkg will use the archive in place, without copying it into the configuration directory. Also, unless the --purge|-p option is specified, bpkg will not attempt to remove this archive when the package is later purged with the bpkg-pkg-purge(1) command.

Pkg-Fetch Options

--replace|-r

Replace the archive if the package is already fetched or unpacked.

--existing|-e

Treat the argument as an existing package archive path rather than the package name/version to fetch.

--purge|-p

Remove the existing package archive when the package is purged.

--directory|-d dir

Assume configuration is in dir rather than in the current working directory.
