You may want to consider a name change for this. "archiso" is actually the name of the software used to create these ISO images, and it's a package in [extra].

Re: ArchDL -- Download Latest Arch Linux ISO Image from Mirror

Hi can you add the option of installing it to usb also, cause it is the main problem right now. Many softwares which used to work with arch live cd  do not work from the time arch has switched to dual architecture cd.Also, to create a usb which can 
be used as a live usb and at same time can store other files requires great efforts. Please have a look at this wiki page for more information on how to do that:

Using Openbox + Tint2 + Idesk

@Pranavg1890, I'll see what I can do. Also, I've created wiki pages at github for all the scripts I released.

Really? This script is to download the iso, right? so, maybe I'm wrong, but I think downloading the iso and install it to an usb has nothing to do.
Or are you going to create another script to do that?

Anyway, about the downloading script.

What if it parsed the download page, to get all links listed there? With something like:

curl -s 'https://www.archlinux.org/download/' |sed -n '/id="download-mirrors"/,/\/div/ {/href/ s/.*href="\([^"]*\).*/\1/p; /h5/ s/.*<h5.*> \([^<]*\).*/\1/p}'

You could get the list of links.

Also, check this: http://grulos.blogspot.mx/2007/10/find- … irror.html
Is an script to find the fastest mirror from a list of urls.

To be really useful the script, it would be better if it autoselected the fastest mirror for you, instead of waiting for you to tell it which mirror to use.

So, what you think?


"open source is about choice"
No.
Open source is about opening the source code complying with this conditions, period. The ability to choose among several packages is just a nice side effect.
