Webpage access


Hi,

What's the command in linux to access a webpage (pdf file in this case) and store it in a directory?

Thanks.

Do you mean you want to download a file from a website somewhere? Have you looked at wget (man wget)? You can use something like the following to retrieve a file:
Code:
wget http://www.somewhere.com/doc.pdf
