How to download a package with all of its dependecies?

Asked by Capslockmat1 on 2009-06-22

I dont have internet connection at home and wish to download packages from my office (Windows is installed on Office PC) and install them on home pc (which has Ubuntu 9.04) .

I tried
http://packages.ubuntu.com/

but it lists dependencies and those dependencies have more dependencies....

Is there any way by which I can download a .deb package with all its dependencies?

something similar to .exe ?
