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`).
