.deb, .rpm — you name it. (Literally. If you find an archive that it doesn't

If you have an archive sitting there of format
zu foo.xyz should
take care of it.

mkdir foo; cd foothen extract there. (The directory name will be the archive file minus the extension.)
- Download the file first, using
wget, if the arg starts with
- Remove the archive file if you pass
