how to get full package url from apt-cache?


is it possible to get the full URL of a package (the one which is passed
by apt-get to dpkg for package installation) from apt-cache or some other
standard tool? What I would lite to do is something like this:

  $ apt-url bash

  $ apt-url my-package

The "apt-cache show" command lists the Filename fields but this is useless
because it is a relative path.
