Slackpkg .... download updates first before upgrading?

Is it possible to download all updates before upgrading packages with slackpkg? I've looked at the man page and can't see anything.

Look at the option DOWNLOAD_ALL in /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf

Thanks phenixia2003, I should have noticed that, when I had slow/limited net I used to use DELALL=on to copy packages to another machines.

Thanks once again.....
