I'm trying to use libapt-pkg-perl to [log story short] and then download
the packages but I can't find a way to get the actual URI to download
the .deb files.
Take a look at the source of libcache-apt-perl - which provides an
Object-Oriented interface to the apt bindings and the source of
apt-cross which parses the URL out of the apt data.
Thanks, I took a look and it looks like it does magic simmilar to what
I've already been resorting too. I was still hoping there would be a more
direct way, like for the source packages.
