EXIT CODES

The location-downloader command will normally exit with code zero. If there has been a problem and the requested action could not be performed, the exit code is unequal to zero.

HOW IT WORKS

The downloader checks a DNS record for the latest version of the database. It will then try to download a file with that version from a mirror server. If the downloaded file is outdated, the next mirror will be tried until we have found a file that is recent enough.
