LXer: New Apt-Fast Version, Now With Full Apt-Get Syntax Replacement

Published at LXer:

Apt-Fast is a script which uses Axel, a command line application which accelerates HTTP/FTP downloads by using multiple sources for one file, and one can use it instead of "apt-get" on Debian based Linux distributions to get an amazing download speed improvement. Yes, it's not an actual Internet connection speed improvement, just some tweaks which make packages download faster with Axel. The new version of the script includes full apt-get syntax replacement, and it might even be a few milliseconds faster as it has a few less calls to grep.
