You can use "tce-load -w extension_name"

Of course this only works natively.

By natively, I meant that it only works in tinycore.

If you have to download extensions using windows, then you'll need to do it manually.

Why do you need to use windows?

Juanito i hate window but some time internet not work on my tiny core i don't  know why i think it is due to proxy but i configure proxy like export http_proxy=http://1.1.1.1:8080 but still internet not work then I use window to download tcz packages.

If you have cygwin on the MS Windows side, you can use wget in a script:

wget one or more extensions from the repo, along with their .dep files, then...
  • cat all dep files into one big super.dep file
  • run that through sort and uniq
  • for each dep extension listed in the super.dep file, if extension not already present, wget extension with its .dep file

Repeat steps 1 - 3 above until there are no unresolved deps to pull.

Such a script is useful on Windows/cygwin (especially if one has an ext filesystem driver) and also, for instance, when upgrading - running 4.x but pulling down extensions for 5.x where you are using neither the default repo nor the default tce directory.  And, unlike tce-load, you can run it as root, though you should chown the extensions to tc:staff at the end.

If you don't already have it, cygwin is a non-trivial download, but it is, IMHO, worth having.
32 bit core4.7.7, Xprogs, Xorg-7.6, wbar, jwm
PPR, data persistence through filetool.sh
USB Flash drive, one partition, ext2, grub4dos

"sudo" is in no way related to "judo", which
involves physically throwing a user to the floor,
usually just prior to pummeling him.

I find also the " tce-ab " very useful
