Please replace the url in the downgrade script with :

line 92 url="http://arm.konnichi.com/search/raw.php?a=$arch&q=^$term\$$repos"

I am a robot. This is not an official message. AUR guidelines suggest to not include binaries. You have accidentally tarred up some dotfiles. Examples:
..tar.gz
downgrade/..tar.gz
Suggestion: use "makepkg --source". Feel free to disregard this as you would any other comment. This robot will not post here again.

Got timeout error when trying to download from 66.30.118.211 (pbrisbin.com).

exiting 0 on no results is a bug in my opinion, i'll change that soon. as for the second part, you need to choose a package to downgrade to. even if there's only one result you still have to type "1" and hit enter. maybe a feature request to default choice to 1 or something...

i will update the script to handle the 'bad array subscript' more kindly though.

Fair enough. I appreciate the quick response.

$ downgrade mocp

$ echo $?
0

$ downgrade moc

The following packages are available in your cache:
1 local moc-2.4.4-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz [installed]

please choose a version, type s to [s]earch A.R.M.: <I just hit ENTER>
/usr/bin/downgrade: line 62: LOCALS: bad array subscript
error: invalid choice, quitting...

thanks for the comment MajorTom.

i just uploaded a new version, please update. i tested by downgrading zenity from my cache and ARM and it worked (but it worked for me before too...). let me know if you have issues.

as for the other things, i don't plan on implementing colorized output (you can set PACMAN to pacman-color in the script if you'd like to color that). also, how would single keystroke entry work if you've got a list of available packages > 10?

also, please note that the ARM maintainer is handing that project off to someone else (there's a forum post somewhere...) so i can't guarantee this script won't get rocky throughout the transition.

it is useful though, so once the ARM situation settles, i'll be sure to get this script working (if needed).

This tool is a really good idea. Any plans to improve it a little, time permitting of course?

I have just tried 'downgrade mocp' and the script simply exited with no errors. It looks like the exit code was 0. Later I realized the package name for mocp was actually "moc".

I was then forced to go back to the latest version of moc, so I thought WTH I'll use 'downgrade' again. I got this:

$ downgrade moc

The following packages are available in your cache:
1 local moc-2.4.4-1-i686.pkg.tar.xz

please choose a version, type s to [s]earch A.R.M.: 1
error: invalid choice, quitting...

Hmmm. Anyway, some other enhancements I wish for: colorized output, single keystroke input (achievable with 'read -n 1 VARNAME')

Thanks Pat.
