OK, an update. I've got a perl version that uses the sources listed in /etc/apt/sources.list but it's not yet fully usable.

Code so far is attached.

Example:
$ perl cross-get.pl --verbose --get libqof1 pilot-qof
Arch:     arm
Suite:    unstable
Package:  libqof1
Package:  pilot-qof
Filename: pilot-qof_0.1.1-3_arm.deb
Mirror:   ftp://mirror.ox.ac.uk/debian/
Filename: libqof1_0.7.1-3_arm.deb
Mirror:   ftp://mirror.ox.ac.uk/debian/

The remaining conversions are included as comments - I'll look at those tomorrow. Currently, the perl script requires the original bash script to have been run for the arch, suite and mirror required.
