commandline download client


hi,
i need a downloadmanager that works from command line. seems there is no such thing in my distro.
if someone knew how to download tar.gz with lynx this would be ok. all i manage with lynx is that it saves or displays html-files. but i need to download a tar-gunzipped directory and save it. should not be too difficult, but i don't find out :-(
cheers, jens

u're right i havn't met that yet. it's not installed on my box either. but i found out how to download with lynx a couple minutes after posting this thread ;-). (sort of embarassing not to know such things, isn't it?)
thanks anyway.

wget is probably something you should look into though, it's a great program, very featuristic, and better than a browser downloader.

wget -c is used for resuming, and that's just one of the awesome things it does.

You should check it out

Cool

But if you're not into all that malarky, then you can use Download4X at the commandline too. I'd still go for wget, though.

I tried using wget over a year back...and I kept on getting corrupted files - I eventually crossed over to downloader for x, and got perfect copies everytime.

But my question is, has anyone else had problems with corruption using wget, or was it just something that I was doing wrong? (I kinda liked that program.)

TIA
