.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.LP
\fBapt\-fast\fR is a shellscript wrapper for apt\-get or aptitude that can
drastically improve APT download times by downloading packages in parallel,
with multiple connections per package.
.br
It uses \fBaria2c\fR(1) as default download accelerator.
.LP
For every command or option you can use either \fBapt\-get\fR(8) or
\fBaptitude\fR(1) syntax, depending which package manager you have selected
with \fB_APTMGR\fR configuration item. See \fBapt-fast.conf\fR(5) for detailed
description of configuration items.
.LP
Commands listed here use download accelerator to retrieve new packages or
influence \fBapt\-fast\fR in different ways. See documentation of selected
package manager to get overview of all commands available.
.TP
\fBinstall\fR <\fIpackage1\fP> <\fIpackage2\fP> ...
 Install one or more packages. The packages should be listed after the
install command.
.TP
\fBupgrade\fR
Upgrade currently installed packages to newest or pinned versions. Under no
circumstances are currently installed packages removed, or packages not
already installed retrieved and installed.
.TP
\fBdist\-upgrade\fR
Same as \fBupgrade\fR command, but currently installed packages can be removed,
or packages not already installed retrieved and installed.
.TP
\fBfull\-upgrade\fR
Same as \fBdist\-upgrade\fR command.
.TP
\fBbuild\-dep\fR <\fIpackage1\fP> <\fIpackage2\fP> ...
Install build dependencies of one or more packages. The packages should be
listed after the build\-dep command.
.TP
\fBdownload\fR <\fIpackage1\fP> <\fIpackage2\fP> ...
Download packages to current working directory. It depends on download helper
if already downloaded packages are recognised.
.TP
\fBsource\fR <\fIpackage1\fP> <\fIpackage2\fP> ...
Download source packages to current working directory and extract source
archives. It depends on download helper if already downloaded source packages
are recognised.
.TP
\fBclean\fR
Clean package cache (configuration item \fBAPTCACHE\fR) and temporary download
directory (configuration item \fBDLDIR\fR). Also remove temporary download list
file (configuration item \fBDLLIST\fR).
.SH "OPTIONS"
Options listed here influence \fBapt\-fast\fR behavior. See
documentation of selected package manager to get overview of all options
available.
.LP
.TP
\fB\-y\fR, \fB\-\-yes\fR, \fB\-\-assume\-yes\fR
Automatic "yes" to prompts; assume "yes" as answer to all prompts and run
non\-interactively. Sets \fBDOWNLOADBEFORE\fR configuration item to "true".
.TP
\fB\-\-assume\-no\fR
Automatic "no" to all prompts. Unsets \fBDOWNLOADBEFORE\fR configuration
item.
