Running wget multiple downloads simultaneously


I want to have a script that when executed downloads x amount of files via wget simultaneously.

wget file1
wget file2

When putting that in a bash script it downloads the files in turn, I want it so it all gets DL'ed together.

I'm not a script but I assume there would be an ez way to do this?

Thx

Putting an ampersand (&) at the end of a command forces it to run in the background. The following should work:
Code:
wget file1 &
wget file2 &
