To get the dates of downloaded files


As for files which are downloaded from http servers: does anybody know a method to get the original date of the downloaded file? (I mean the date from the server). Does anybody know any downloader that can be so customized as to download files together with their original dates?
Thanks in advance!

The command line program "wget" will preserve the original time. Any GUI downloader that uses wget for its backend process should also work.

Code:
wget -c http://www.server.com/myfile.zip
