This is version 1.0 of the download package, a package which allows
LaTeX to download files using wget or cURL.

The following files are enclosed.

  README        - This file
  Makefile      - GNU Makefile for making the package and documentation
  download.tex  - LaTeX source code of the package and documentation
  download.pdf  - PDF version of the documentation

Installation notes:
The easiest way to install this package, assuming you have obtained the
source code from Github or CTAN, is to simply run `make install`. This
will generate package code and documentation, install it into TEXMFHOME
and run `mktexlsr`. If you wish to compile the package but not install
it, run `make all` instead. If you insist on doing it manually, remember
that you must use `pdflatex` (not `tex` or `latex`).

down­load – Al­low LaTeX to down­load files us­ing an ex­ter­nal pro­cess

The pack­age al­lows the user to down­load files (us­ing cURL or wget), from within a doc­u­ment.

To run the ex­ter­nal com­mands, LaTeX (or what­ever) needs to be run with the --shell-es­cape flag; this cre­ates a ten­sion be­tween your needs and the se­cu­rity im­pli­ca­tions of the flag; users should ex­er­cise due cau­tion.
