I made a script to automate a linux install with all packages and configurations for a security server at work.
Everything works well, but I would like to tweak it to download the newest version of a proprietary package.
The problem I'm having is that the package provider makes minor updates frequently, and the revision number of the package changes. The way I am currently using "wget" is very simple, and it doesn't download unless I provide the complete name of the package:
What would you recommend to download the newest revision when the script runs? Can you somehow use a wildcard in wget, then run a find on everything that was downloaded?(wildcard didn't work when I tried it)
