How can I down­load a pack­age?

You can down­load the con­tents of a pack­age via the down­load link on the pack­age page or on the CTAN tex-archive page. This down­load link is pro­vided in case that a zip archive for the pack­age is present on CTAN.

Not all pack­ages in the cat­a­logue are present as zip archives on CTAN.

The down­load makes use of an au­to­mat­i­cally se­lected mir­ror server to re­ceive the file from. The se­lec­tion of the mir­ror takes into con­sid­er­a­tion the health of the mir­ror, the lo­ca­tion of the mir­ror and the re­quester as well as a heuris­tic to dis­tribute the traf­fic to the var­i­ous servers.
